Cavs Break NBA Record For 3-pointers Made


In a 135-130 triumphant close victory against the Atlanta Hawks, the Cleveland Cavaliers set a record from downtown. The Cavaliers set the record for the most 3-pointers made in a game, 25.

The Cavaliers were led by Kyrie Irving, who had 43 points on 5-of-8 shooting from the 3-point line. From the start of the game, Irving’s main focal point was to get shots up early.

NBALEAD insider David Weinblatt caught up with Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer prior to the game and wanted his guys [Hawks] to communicate on defense from the get-go.

“We’ve been doing it a lot for the last, uh, I don’t know how many years,” Budenholzer told Weinblatt. “I think we can continue to get better with [it].”

However, his team started the game poorly defensively, as Cleveland was getting after it offensively. The Hawks were having extreme difficulties to guard the 3-point line.

Former Hawk, Kyle Korver, went 3-of-7 from three as well. Coming into the game, his former teammate Dwight Howard was happy to see him again, but on the court, it was strictly business.

“He’s not our brother right now. I love Kyle. We’ve had some great moments, but our job is to destroy the Cavs,” Howard told Weinblatt.

Here are the Cavs who made 3-pointers tonight:

  • LeBron James led all with 6
  • Kyrie Irving with 5
  • Channing Frye, Derrick Willaims, Richard Jefferson and Kyle Korver each with 3
  • Iman Shumpert with 2

The Cavaliers are now 42-18 for the season as they lead the Celtics by three games. They will take on the Hawks again on April 7th and again on the 9th. Both will be broadcasted on NBA TV.
