Can Buddy Hield join top 3-point shooters in NBA history?


Damian Lillard made history Tuesday night in Indiana.

The All-Star guard became just the 10th player ever to eclipse the 2,000 career made 3-pointers mark by knocking down four triples in the Trail Blazers' blowout win over the Indiana Pacers.

Lillard reached the milestone in his 671st game, a pace bested only by Stephen Curry, who achieved the feat in his 597th game.

Here's a look at the 10 members of the 2,000 3-pointers club:

  1. Ray Allen (2,973 3-pointers)
  2. Stephen Curry (2,773)
  3. Reggie Miller (2,560)
  4. Kyle Korver (2,450)
  5. James Harden (2,441)
  6. Vince Carter (2,290)
  7. Jason Terry (2,282)
  8. Jamal Crawford (2,221)
  9. Paul Pierce (2,143)
  10. Damian Lillard (2,001)

The Kings are not well-represented in the 2,000 club. Vince Carter is the only former King on the list, and he made just 57 of his 2,290 career 3s with Sacramento. Buddy Hield has the best chance of any current Kings to make 2,000 career 3s. Hield has 1,115 makes in his career and has made at least 240 3s in three straight seasons. At that pace, Hield could make his 2,000th career 3-pointer within the next three or four seasons.
