New York Knicks' J.R. Smith sets record for 3-point attempts


New York Knicks’ guard J.R. Smith have never been gun shy.

Smith his known for his ability to throw up several shots in a short period of time and has never been a model of efficiency.

On Sunday, in a 102-91 loss to the Miami Heat, Smith outdid anything he’s never done in his career prior.

In fact, he outdid anything anyone’s ever done by taking 22 3-pointers, a new NBA record.


Honestly, Smith’s 3-point shooting was not the problem. He hit 10 of his 22 attempts, meaning he scored 30 points on those 22 shots. He did, however, make just one of his six 2-point attempts and despite taking 28 shots in a game, Smith did not attempt a free throw.

Smith also caused a few funny remarks from the NBA world on twitter.


Smith is averaging 14.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game this season.
