Talk about a hot streak. Danny Green has now converted 25 three-point field goals during the NBA Finals, breaking an incredible record previously held by current opponent Ray Allen. Per the San Antonio Express-News: “Danny Green drilled six more 3-pointers in Game 5, giving him 25 in the Finals to break Ray Allen’s record for most makes from beyond the arc in a championship series. It’s been a remarkable performance from the former D-Leaguer, who was cut multiple times before finally sticking with the Spurs at the end of the 2010-11 season. He’s steadily improved since then — earning a starting job, becoming one of the league’s top 3-point shooters, and now making history. Green was 6 for 10 in Game 5, and is 25 for 38 in the series. You can view every 3 he’s made in the Finals at NBA.com. Allen held the previous record for the Finals and a six-game playoff series (shared by Jason Richardson) with 22. Game 6 has yet to be played, and he’s already broke the latter mark as well. With at least one more game to play — Game 6 is Tuesday in Miami — Green is approaching the top 3-point shooting performances of all time: 28 – Dennis Scott, Orlando vs. Indiana, 1995 (43.1 percent). 28 – Ray Allen, Milwaukee vs. Philadelphia, 2001 (50.9). 27 – Ray Allen, Boston vs. Chicago, 2009 (46.6).”
