Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez recorded a career-high 8 triples in Sunday night’s 121-114 victory against the Denver Nuggets. Lopez has now made 39 threes this season. That’s more three-pointers than Klay Thompson, James Harden, Bradley Beal and Damian Lillard!
Lopez has made just 3 three-pointers during the first 8 seasons of his NBA career. This season, he’s averaging 3 made threes per game on 41.9% shooting. Per @bball_ref, the NBA single-season record for made threes by a 7-footer is 151 by Dirk Nowitzki. At his current pace, Lopez might surpass that by the All-Star break.
