Steve Kerr never did it. Neither did Ben Gordon.

Not even Michael Jordan accomplished what Zach LaVine did Friday night in Oklahoma City, albeit in a brutal collapse of a loss.

LaVine became the first player in franchise history to make at least seven 3-pointers in consecutive games, draining 8-for-14 from beyond the arc to continue his recent torrid offensive streak.

LaVine, who sank 10-for-16 from 3-point range in Sunday's loss to the Clippers in Los Angeles, has scored 30 or more points in four straight games to equal his personal-best streak. He has five 30-point games in his last six. Over that six-game span, LaVine is averaging 34.5 points on 54.5 percent shooting, including 46.3 percent from deep. He's also averaging six assists and 4.2 turnovers in that span.

With his 10 3-pointers in the loss to the Clippers, LaVine became just the sixth player in NBA history with multiple games of 10 or more 3-pointers. LaVine sank 13 in an overtime victory at Charlotte last season.

But given how despondent LaVine was in his postgame media interview over Zoom, he'd trade all these individual accolades for a victory.

"You gotta learn how to win a basketball game when you’re up by 20. There’s not a lot to talk about. It’s about as plain as simple as it gets right there," LaVine said. "You're up by 20, you can’t lose."
