The San Antonio Express-News blog reports:
San Antonio’s blistering start from behind the 3-point arc could have the Spurs challenging the league record if they can maintain their current shooting pace.
The Spurs are hitting 41.4 percent of their 3-point shots. That percentage has been eclipsed by only one team in NBA history — the 1996-97 Charlotte Hornets who shot 42.8 percent.
That shooting prowess was on display Sunday afternoon against Portland, when the Spurs hit 9-for-17 from behind the arc for 52.7 percent. It marked the fifth time this season that the Spurs have hit 50 percent or better in a game behind the arc.
San Antonio started the game 7-for-10 from behind the arc, showcasing the depth in their shooting. They rank second in the league with 206 3-pointers, trailing only New York’s 227.
