“We lived with the result of J.R. making some of those bombs.” said LeBron about JR Smith’s record night.
Smith broke the Knicks record of made 3-pointers with 10 and broke a 9 year old record held by Damon Stoudemire for most attempted 3-pointers with 22!
Smith was so quick to fire up a 3 that he actually attempted 10 in the 4th quarter and finished the game 11 for 28 (0 shot attempts in the paint) from the field.
“It’s not really been a goal of mine,” Smith said. “I saw the open 3 and tried to take them. I had to take advantage.”
Smith also set the NBA record for most 3-pointers over a 3 game stretch with 24.
