Watch the Rockets drop a record-setting 26 3-pointers

Watch the Rockets drop a record-setting 26 3-pointers”

Prior to that, Houston was one of the teams that had shared the record for more three-pointers made, having shot 24-of-61 on December 16, 2016, against the New Orleans Pelicans. The onus of making history fell on Michael Carter-Williams, who converted the Rockets 26 triple of the game with just 31.1 seconds left in the game.

The Cleveland Cavaliers held the previous National Basketball Association record with 25 three-pointers, which occurred in March 2017 against the Atlanta Hawks. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving combined for 11 of Cleveland's 25 three-pointers in a matchup against the Atlanta Hawks.

Chris Paul (21 points) added five from beyond the arc and Gerald Green (12) and Eric Gordon (16) made four apiece as the Rockets - who endured a rough start to the season - got back to their free-wheeling ways with a fifth straight victory.

But if there is one thing that fans should not write off, it is the Rockets' long-range firepower.

"Our energy is right the last five games". We're gonna break the record again.

Reigning NBA Champions Golden State Warriors suffered a 108-103 defeat away to the Utah Jazz. Since Daryl Morey took over the franchise 11 years ago, he has pioneered a league-wide shift in how heavily long-distance shooting is incorporated in schematics and game-planning, to the point where two-thirds of the league is taking more than 30 threes a night.

"It's not surprising, honestly", Kerr said. Every time a Rockets' player got hold of the ball, the crowd erupted with a chant of "Three, Three, Three." but they'd missed four consecutive attempts and the clock continued to run down. "We made it close with a few shots down the stretch, but we didn't really play our game". In the process of asserting that they are, in fact, back, the Rockets broke an National Basketball Association record by hitting 26 threes.

Houston scored a season-high tying 136 points, including 101 through three quarters of play, after averaging 104.3 ppg the seven games prior.
