When we think shooters in the modern history of the NBA, Philadelphia 76ers guard Shake Milton does not immediately come to mind.
It starts with Stephen Curry and now includes Atlanta Hawks youngster Trae Young.
However, Milton bested both of them during Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers. In fact, he now holds the NBA record with 14 consecutive made three-pointers.
That’s some extraordinary stuff from the former G-League player.
Milton, 23, ended up scoring 26 points in the first half alone. He also entered Sunday’s action shooting 43% from three-point range on the season. That seems good.
Philadelphia definitely needs this with both Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid sidelined to injury.
