HoopsHype Kyle Korver rumors

December 11, 2013 Updates

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

Chris Vivlamore: Me: Would you take satisfaction in stopping Korver streak? Mike Brown: No. We are not going to stop Kyle Korver from making a 3 or 3s. Twitter @ajchawks

Dana Barros, a little point guard out of Massachusetts who got to play for the Celtics as part of a 14-year NBA career, and while there he set a record: Eighty-nine consecutive games with a made three. If Kyle Korver knocks down a three Friday night when the Hawks host the Cleveland Cavaliers Korver will have knocked down a three in 90 consecutive games. That is an insane streak. To give you a little perspective, Ray Allen has never gotten above 47 straight games and he is probably the greatest three-point shooter of all time. Stephen Curry got to 53 last seasons and his streak died. Third place on the list behind Barros and Korver is Peja Stojakovic at 62. NBCSports.com

Kyle Korver did not travel with the Hawks to Washington, D.C. Saturday and will miss his third straight game with a rib contusion. Korver stayed behind in Atlanta for more treatment as the team traveled following Friday’s dramatic win over the Mavericks. Not making the trip does not preclude Korver from joining the team for the second game of the road trip in San Antonio Monday. That decision has yet to be made. Atlanta Journal-Constitution
