Total Three-Point Shots Made
Both the incumbent and the challenger for this mark are easy to guess for Milwaukee Bucks fans. Ray Allen hit more threes than any other player in franchise history, making 1,051 of them in his seven Milwaukee seasons.
Khris Middleton is already eighth among Bucks in made threes, and needs just under 700 more of them to pass Ray. Khris made 143 threes last season. If he averages 140 makes for the next five years, he’ll lead the Bucks in career made threes.
Considering how poorly the Bucks did in spacing the floor in recent years, he’s the only one who seems to have a chance at displacing Allen. Really, the times are working against Ray as much as Middleton is in this case.
The NBA in general is much more trigger-happy from long-range than it ever has been before. If as much emphasis was put on three-point shooting in the early 2000s as it is now, Allen might’ve been asked to shoot even more. Still, he actually did average more threes per 36 minutes with the Bucks than Middleton does.
Considering his 40.6 percent three-point conversion rate, he probably would’ve made a significant amount of those extra attempts. Middleton, for what it’s worth, has been a 40.5 percent three-point shooter with the Bucks.
