After struggling from beyond the arc in their last few games, the San Antonio Spurs tied a franchise record of 20 made three pointers in a game while Patty Mills made eight for a career high. At one point, the Spurs’ elder statesman hit back-to-back-to-back-to-back (also known as four in a row) threes to help the good guys get a win against the Los Angeles Clippers. For the night, Mills scored a team high 27 points going 8 of 12 from downtown while Dejounte Murray also shot the ball well scoring 21 points on 50% shooting and 2/5 from deep.
