In Game 5 of the 2020 NBA Finals, the back-and-forth battle between the Heat and Lakers—led by Jimmy Butler and LeBron James—made for one of the most entertaining Finals games in recent years.

Aside from the superstar matchup, Heat forward Duncan Robinson dazzled in Game 5, dropping 26 points with 7 three-pointers—setting the record for most threes made in a Finals game by an undrafted player.

While in college at Michigan, Robinson knocked down 41.9 percent of the threes. Last season, while playing for the G League’s Sioux Falls Skyforce, Robinson buried an eye-popping 48.3 percent of his threes on 9.8 attempts per game.

This season, Robinson made 44.6 percent of his threes on 8.3 attempts per game. His percentage has dipped a bit in the playoffs, where he’s shooting 39.6 percent from deep.

With little wasted motion and a lightning-quick release, the 26-year-old sharpshooter should be one of the League’s premier three-point threats for a long time.
