In case you missed it, San Antonio Spurs shooting guard Danny Green has been lights out from behind the arc hitting a record 25 three pointers through five games; a number good enough to break the record for most three's made in a Finals series.

The San Antonio Spurs are on the verge of capturing their 5th NBA title in 14 years, and much of it can be attributed to the scorching three-point shooting from Danny Green.

Danny Green is now the king of Finals three point shooting.
