Watch All 23 Three-Pointers From The Rockets’ Record-Tying Night

Sit back as Houston pours in 69 points in 185 seconds

Here’s every made 3-pointer from Houston’s 140-109 victory over Golden State on Tuesday, in which the Rockets matched the NBA single-game record for longballs with 23.

Yes, it ended with one of the legendary troll jobs in NBA history — the Rockets couldn’t even attempt a 3-pointer to break the mark over the last 1:58 because Golden State coach Mark Jackson ordered his team to foul intentionally — yet it doesn’t make the record-tying effort any less spectacular. Nine different Rockets had made 3s, with no player shooting worse than 50 percent from long range. What’s more, they shot 23-for-40 from beyond the arc and 46-for-91 overall, meaning they finished with as many 2-pointer as 3-pointers. Not normal.

(Incidentally, it seems Andrew Bogut wasn’t overly happy with the Rockets’ enthusiasm for the long-range bomb with Houston up 30.)
