When the Brooklyn Nets walked into Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, superstar James Harden was one triple away from moving up in the history books.
At the seven-minute mark of the first quarter, he hit that shot using his signature stepback move to pass Reggie Miller for third place on the all-time made three-pointers list.
Sitting courtside announcing the game for TNT, Miller was there to see it happen.
Harden now has 2561 career threes, with more likely to come from tonight’s game. Ray Allen is second on the list with 2973 made three-pointers, 412 more than Harden. While getting past all-time three-pointer king Stephen Curry is unlikely, the dual the two former MVPs will have could be a joy to watch as the two are playing in an era where the triple has become the most weapon in the game today.
