The Houston Rockets have set a new mark for three-pointers made by a team in a single season—Trevor Ariza made a long-range bomb Wednesday night to give Houston 892 threes made, breaking the NBA record previously held by the 2012-13 New York Knicks.
It wasn’t enough, however, as the San Antonio Spurs routed the visitors 110-98.
The Spurs, looking terrifying once again with the postseason looming, have now won nine in a row.
Per the Express-News:
Their 110-98 victory over Houston at the AT&T Center was their ninth straight by at least 12 points. According to Basketball Reference, only the 2008-09 Cavaliers and 2010-11 Heat have ever had similar streaks.
The Spurs will go for the record — that they didn’t even know about, and probably wouldn’t care if they did — Friday with a return date against the Rockets.
