Cavs suffer worst loss of 2017-18 season, fall 127-99 to Timberwolves; Three takeaways

Korver moves up all-time three-pointer list

The lone positive from the one-sided affair came on a Kyle Korver trey with eight minutes, 10 seconds left in the second quarter. He surpassed Paul Pierce for fourth all-time in three-pointers made, sinking 2,144 over the course of his 16-year career (1,071 games).

Korver led the NBA in three-pointers in 2004-05 (226), and registered the highest three-point shooting percentage in 2009-10 (53.6%), 2013-14 (47.2%), 2014-15 (49.2%) and 2016-17 (45.1%). He has been a prolific shooter dating back to his days at Creighton University, where he began the ‘Let it Fly’ era and paved the way for players like Doug McDermott and Anthony Tolliver.

The 36-year-old has enough time to arguably become the greatest shooter in the history of the game.
