The Houston Rockets have broken the all-time team record for three-point shots made in a single NBA season.
The Rockets broke the record with shooting guard James Harden’s made three-point shot with 10.1 seconds to go in the first quarter of Thursday night’s road loss against the Portland Trail Blazers at the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon.
Harden’s three-point shot gave the Rockets 1,078 three-point shots made as a team this season, breaking the previous record of 1,077 three-point shots made in a season set by the Golden State Warriors last season.
The record set by the Warriors last season took them all 82 games of the regular season to accomplish. The Rockets were able to break that record by upping that 1,077 three-point shots made total in the first quarter of just their 75th game of this season. They still have seven more games to try to add to that record.
The Rockets (51-24) will attempt to rebound from the 117-107 loss to the Trail Blazers when they play on Friday, March 31st, 2017, at 10:30 PM EDT on the road against the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California while attempting to add to their new three-point record.
