Ty Lawson hits 10 three-pointers for NuggetsPosted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports:
Just keep shooting those 3s, Raymond Felton implored Ty Lawson.
Except for that last one.
Lawson made his first 10 3-pointers Saturday night on his way to a career-high 37 points in leading the short-handed Denver Nuggets to a 130-106 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Lawson became the first player in NBA history to start a game with 10 straight 3-point conversions but missed out on another record by finally missing from behind the arc…
Lawson missed a running 28-foot heave, though, as the third quarter ended with Denver ahead 101-69, finishing 10 for 11 from behind the arc.
“I told him not to,” Felton said. “Don’t shoot not crazy shot over there. But he wasn’t aware, though.”
Lawson had no idea that had he just stopped shooting 3s, he’d have been in the NBA record books for most 3-point conversions without a miss. Latrell Sprewell went 9 for 9 from behind the arc for the New York Knicks in a game against the Los Angeles Clippers in 2003.
