Warriors and Kings combine for most 3-pointers in NBA history during thriller

Yahoo! Sports

If you want to understand how much basketball has changed in the past few decades, look no further than the Golden State Warriors’ 127-123 win over the Sacramento Kings on Saturday and where the NBA was 40 years ago.

In the 1979-1980 season, the first year when the NBA adopted the 3-point line of the defunct ABA, seven of the league’s 22 teams made fewer than 40 3-pointers during the entire 82-game regular season.

In a single game in 2019, the Warriors and Kings combined for 41 triples, an NBA record.

Such a disparity between eras is staggering, and just one part of a thrilling night of basketball in Sacramento.
