One of the best content creators of the summer has been NBA trainer Chris Brickley. Besides a bunch of videos of a slim Carmelo Anthony getting buckets with a hoodie on, he and Academy Basketball have given us cool workout videos of Enes Kanter, CJ McCollum and JR Smith.

The latest notable video features Smith knocking down 20 consecutive threes. Obviously he’s never going to knock down 20 in a NBA game but many probably have forgotten that he’s currently tied with Klay Thompson for 2nd most games with 10 or more three pointers. He’s also had a game with 11 (two if you count China) and numerous occasions when I thought he was going to break a NBA record. Here’s highlights from those games.

(2009) 11 vs Kings

(2009) 10 vs Hawks

(2011) 11 in China

(2012) 14 in China

(2014) 10 vs Heat

(2014) 9 vs Kings

(2014) 24 over 3-game stretch

(2015) 8 vs Pistons

(2015) 8 vs Hawks

(2017) 7 vs Warriors
