James Harden has experienced many ups and downs through the 2021-22 regular season with the Brooklyn Nets. However, he’s still making history in several statistical categories.
During the Nets’ victory over the Knicks, Harden made his 2,500th career three-pointer to surpass Kyle Korver and take 4th place on the all-time three-pointers list.
He’s only behind Reggie Miller (2,560), Steph Curry (2,937) and Ray Allen (2,973). Harden is currently averaging 20.3 points per game, making 2.7 three-pointers per game.
In that pace, he could pass Ray Allen and join the top-3 of the list with Steph Curry and Ray Allen. Harden erupted for 34 points against the New York Knicks Tuesday to lead the Nets to a close win over the NY rivals.
Harden credited Reggie Miller, who may surpass this season on the list, for his performance vs Knicks on Tuesday night. The Nets’ superstar revealed he had a conversation with Reggie Miller before the game vs Knicks.
“Reggie’s the one that got me going. Ultimate confidence, ultimate ‘best player in the league’-type vibe. That mindset. Just hit me with some good motivation before the game – something I needed”, Harden said in the postgame presser.
