J.R. Smith

J.R. Smith has now made more three-pointers in one season than any Cleveland Cavalier in history. He passed Wesley Parson’s 192 mark against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night. Smith scored all 21 of his points from three, shooting 7-for-11 from long distance.

With the seven threes made on Tuesday, Smith has a total of 197 on the season. When he reaches the 200 mark he’ll become the only Cavalier to make 200 threes in one season. Smith’s previous season-high for threes was 189 in 2013-14 with the New York Knicks. He made 131 last season with the Knicks and Cavaliers.

Smith has been heating up with 17 threes made in the first three games of April, which is a great sign for the Cavs with the playoffs around the corner.
