The Brooklyn Nets set a new franchise record in three-pointers hit in a game with 24 tonight in a 124-96 win over the Chicago Bulls. Virginia fans will recognize the player to hit the record-setting 22nd three of the game:
Yes, that’s our very own Joe “Joey Buckets” Harris, confidently canning one of his four threes in the game (on five attempts). Harris finished with 16 points on 6-for-9 shooting and added four rebounds, six assists (to just two turnovers), two blocks (!!), and one steal in 29 minutes. His plus/minus of +22 was best on the team in the big win.
In what has been a pretty unremarkable season for the Nets, Harris has been a bright spot. In the last 10 games, he’s shooting 59% from the field and averaging 13.6 points per game. Over the last five, he’s 55% from the field and 46% from the field and 14.8 points per game.
