HoopsHype Dana Barros rumors
Korver, who passed Dana Barros' record of 89 straight (set from 1994-96) earlier this season, went 1 of 9 from the field and missed all five of his attempts from long range, sitting out the fourth quarter. Since Nov. 4, 2012, when his streak started, Korver had knocked down 337 three-pointers. "I’m a little bummed for sure," Korver said. "The streak was good, it was good while it lasted. Some day I’ll look on it and be proud, but obviously it was just a tough game all around for us and that was part of it." Oregonian
When did you find about the Dana Barros record and that you were on course to possibly beating it? Kyle Korver: I didn't even know that this was a record for a long period of time. I think the Hawks' record was like in the 40s or something. I found about that and then I kind of heard about the rest of the list. I heard Barros' number was 89, so I said 'Wow, that's a really incredible number, I don't think there's any chance I'll ever get to that.' But I tried not to think about it too much. I took each game as its own game. My job is to go out there and knock down shots. I was just trying to do that well. Have you spoken with Dana? Kyle Korver: I have not, I've never met him. You would think, in the social media day that we have today, that there would be some kind of connection but I've never spoken to him. HoopsHype

Though he works for the team’s public relations arm now, Barros didn’t try to spin the situation the Celtics are currently in. With Doc Rivers now coaching the Clippers, Ray Allen polishing his Miami Heat championship ring, and Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett suiting up for the Nets, things may not be pretty on the parquet at TD Garden during the 2013-14 campaign. “Definitely, it’s gonna be struggles,” he said of the upcoming season. “We have to try to find an identity, immediately. I think we had an identity when Doc, Paul, Ray and KG were here those six years. We knew who we were -- we were a defensive-minded team. I’m not sure what our identity will be. Figuring out what we do best will be difficult.” ESPN.com
