Celtics set franchise record for 3-pointers made in a single season


The Boston Celtics have a new franchise record for 3-point field goals made in a single season.

On Monday night against the Miami Heat, Marcus Morris grabbed an offensive rebound off a miss with time winding down in the third quarter. Left alone in the corner, Morris put up a 3-point shot from the corner. It went in.

Morris' 3-point shot was the 986th make from beyond the arc this season for the Celtics. That beat the previous high of 985 in a single season, set by the 2016-17 Celtics.

In 2016-17, Isaiah Thomas led the Celtics' charge with a franchise-record 245 made threes of his own, 23 more than Antoine Walker had during the 2001-02 campaign. Jae Crowder and Avery Bradley also cracked the century mark along with Thomas.

During the 2018-19 season, the Celtics have seen more spread-out production from their sharpshooters. They have five players with 100 or more 3-point makes this season, including Kyrie Irving, Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris, and Terry Rozier.

Monday's game also marked the 18th time this season that the Celtics have made 15-plus 3-point shots in a single game. That is a franchise record as well.
