And as Brooklyn Nets travelled to the Wells Fargo Center, the Beard ensured he surpassed Kyle Korver in historic NBA All-Time 3-point list.
During Nets vs 76ers, James Harden scored 20 points to support Kevin Durant in making sure that the team register their first win in the NBA 2021-22 Season. During the process, Harden surpassed Kyle Korver on Number 4 in the NBA All-Time 3-Point list. As there are only 2 active players in the top 5, Harden made sure that he follows his companion Stephen Curry in the same list. Now, Harden is just 109 3-pointers behind legendary Indiana Pacers’ shooter Reggie Miller.
James Harden Leaps Over Kyle Korver on NBA All-Time 3-Point List
James Harden went 3 for 7 during Nets vs 76ers, from downtown. In addition, his accuracy rate has been just over 50% in the first two games of the NBA 2021-22 Season. Knowing that without Kyrie Irving in the Nets team, Harden will have to be back at his supreme best from behind the arc, this historic feat could add to the confidence of the Beard, who has been only supporting KD on the offensive end.
Furthermore, Brooklyn Nets trailed the entire game against the Philadelphia 76ers, who were led by Tobias Harris and Seth Curry with 23 points each. While Joel Embiid wasn’t too impactful in the dying stages, James Harden, LaMarcus Aldridge and Kevin Durant ensured that they led the away team to pull off a win from the clutches of the Sixers late on.
Talking about the NBA All-Time 3-point list, James Harden is a long way behind Stephen Curry and Ray Allen. But with 109 buckets behind Reggie Miller, his goal could very well be to surpass the former before the end of NBA 2021-22 Season.
