LeBron James breaks Robert Horry's record for most 3-pointers in the NBA Finals
LeBron has made 57 career 3-pointers in the NBA Finals
LeBron James added another NBA record to his career achievements in Game 1 of the Finals. Knocking down two three pointers, James passed Robert Horry for the most 3s made in the Finals.
Horry previously held the record with 56 but James is now the current record-holder with 57. Ray Allen is third on that list with 55 triples and Derek Fisher and Kobe Bryant are fourth with 48 3s. James will likely easily extend his record since the Cavs have to play at least three more games in the series.
This record may not seem that noteworthy yet it points to how many times James has made it to the Finals. Horry achieved that record after playing in seven NBA Finals, earning the moniker "Big Shot Bob" because all of his timely 3s. Similar to Horry, James is playing in his seventh Finals. And with the way James continuing to play at such a high level, he could end up playing in several more Finals, meaning that this record achievement could likely keep growing.
