Korver set the mark from Nov. 4, 2012 through March 2, 2014. He shattered the previous record of 89 straight games with a 3-pointer held by Dana Barros. Korver is currently ninth all-time in NBA/ABA history with 1,826 3-pointers. He already has jumped Joe Johnson and Rashard Lewis this season and is four away from tying Chauncey Billups (1,830) for eighth place. Ray Lewis is the all-time leader by a wide margin with 2,973 3-pointers.
Billups, 39, adds that when he talks to NBA players today, “The biggest gripe that most of the other high-level point guards have now is they have to guard Steph but Steph doesn’t have to guard them. The Warriors put Klay Thompson on them, who is bigger and stronger than Steph. And what these other point guards say to me is, ‘Man, I’m chasing this dude, he’s scoring 30 or 40 on me, and I can’t even get him back — he’s not even guarding me!’ … We’re some of best point guards out here. So let’s give people what they came to see.'”

Gores said Wallace and Billups both embodied the spirit and determination of the Detroit community. “While we celebrate their individual accomplishments, it was their selflessness that helped make them so special,” said Gores. “They showed up every day willing to work and sacrifice for the good of the team. They put winning above all else and in the process inspired a generation of Pistons fans.”
