HoopsHype Kyle Korver rumors

January 5, 2014 Updates

Ex-Bulls sharpshooter Kyle Korver extended his consecutive-games streak with a made three-pointer 103 contests in a row Saturday night at the United Center, his old stomping grounds. Unfortunately for Korver, it came in a loss for his current team, the Hawks. The team-first player was reluctant to talk about the streak after the game, as it was clearly weighing on his mind. “It’s something that I’d to reflect on when it’s done a little more, but I missed a lot of them tonight. I haven’t shot the ball well for a couple weeks, really. So it’s something I’ve got to figure out. But it’s nice to be a part of a record, for sure,” he said in a weary tone. “Everybody knows about it now and I think everyone’s always trying to break [end] it, which is fine. That’s what they’re supposed to do. But yeah, I don’t know what the reason is, but I definitely have not shot the ball well for a couple weeks now.” CSN Chicago

The Hawks just couldn't close in regulation, not with James knocking down two three-pointers and dunking over Millsap in the final 1:49 of regulation, before driving and finding Ray Allen in the left corner, which led to a foul and Allen making three free throws. Nor could the Hawks complete the task in the overtime, with Korver and Millsap both missing three-pointers and Korver—with Mario Chalmers under him—unable to convert an inbounds lob from Pero Antic. "They made a bunch of really clutch plays tonight," Korver said. "We should have won that game a couple times. That's why they are champions. They've been through a bunch of these games, and we're still growing." "We were just one play away every time from putting them away and we couldn't do it," Horford said. "Credit to them."

You were a free agent last summer and there was a point early in July when everybody was kind of expecting you to sign with the Brooklyn Nets. What happened there? Kyle Korver: We talked to quite a few teams and Brooklyn was one of them. It was right after their big trade and there was a lot of excitement about them. I had some good connections, a couple of players of my team, the general manager there had actually drafted me in Philly... At the end of the day, both me and my wife wanted to come back to Atlanta. We wanted to be a part of what they are building here. We believe in their vision and we're excited to be a part of it. HoopsHype

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

Kyle Korver now stands alone in the NBA record books. The guard set the all-time league mark with a 3-pointer in 90 consecutive games. He broke the mark of 89 he shared with Dana Barros for two just days. Barros had held the record since January 1996. Now it belongs to just Korver. “It feels good,” Korver said. “I’m glad it’s done. My naps the last couple of games haven’t been very solid. I try not to think about getting this close and not getting it. That would not have been fun. I’m proud of it for sure.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

It was part of a first-quarter Hawks onslaught. Atlanta Journal-Constitution
