Brooklyn Nets combo guard James Harden was instrumental in the team’s comeback victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, putting up an all-around performance vs. an Eastern Conference contender.
Harden has also completed an impressive milestone as he surpassed Kyle Korver for fourth on the NBA’s All-Time three-point list. Korver now works for the Nets as a player development coach.
The Nets’ superstar completed the feat with a trademark stepback jumper from beyond the arc in the third quarter of his team’s road win over Philadelphia.
Harden added another one from beyond the arc down the road to raise his NBA career tally to 2,452 three-pointers. Now, he’s only behind Ray Allen(2,973), Steph Curry(2,842) and Reggie Miller(2,560).
He finished Friday’s contest with 20 points, eight assists and seven rebounds, shooting a respectable 7-of-17 from the field along with 3 threes.
