A hand in their face, a man closing out quick, and with the clock running down: NBA players are the best in the world at making 3-pointers.
Obviously, the modern NBA has taken a sharp turn toward points scored behind 3-point arc. This season’s Houston Rockets team was a testament to what you can do with a revolutionary coach and one of the best 3-point shooting squads ever assembled top-to-bottom.
Teams like the Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Portland Trail Blazers also made a living behind the line in 2016-17.
Some perspective: Houston hit an insane amount of 3-pointers this season at 1,177. Phoenix was at the bottom of the league with 592, a mark that would have put them somewhere in the middle of the league just a few seasons ago in 2013-14, according to NBA.com.
So as you would imagine, the highlight video of the most important 3-pointers from last season in the NBA is quite long. Watch the full video above, and see if your team made the cut.
