Found November 23, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
Kyle Korver re-signed with the Hawks on a 4 year deal worth 24 million dollars this off-season, and many questioned the move. I think it was a smart move, as they needed a guy who could stretch the floor, and could fit in Mike Budenholzer’s offense. Well, he has had a good year so far, averaging 12 points and 4 rebounds a game, and shooting nearly 53% from beyond the arc. Coming into this season, Korver had a chance to go for the all-time record for consecutive games with a 3 pointer made. Dana Barros holds the record with 89 games, and Korver is approaching fast. He came into Saturday night’s game with 86 in a row, and he hit one against the Celtics in Atlanta, and he is now just 2 games behind with 87. Korver will have the chance to tie Barros on Wednesday against the Rockets, and with the way he’s been playing, I have no doubt that he will reach that mark.
