The Atlanta Hawks were without the presence of sharp shooting guard Kyle Korver since a rib injury that forced him to miss the previous four games. But Korver returned in a big way on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Clippers.
As reported at rotoworld.com, Korver returned from his rib injury and made six 3-pointers and went 8 for 12 from the floor. His season high of 23 points helped the Hawks defeat the Clippers, 107-97.
Korver did not miss a beat from his absence and is now shooting 53 percent from the floor and 51 percent from 3-point range. With his six 3-pointers, he has now tied Dana Barros by hitting a 3-pointer in 89 straight games. Korver has the opportunity to break the record on Friday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Korver is in his 11th season out of Creighton. He has played for the Philadelphia 76ers, Utah Jazz, Chicago Bulls and the Hawks. A career 42 percent 3-point shooter, Korver shot a career best 53.6 percent from 3-point range in 2009-2010. He has always provided a consistent 3-point threat wherever he's played. Korver is averaging 12.4 points in 16 games this season and has a career scoring average of 9.7 points in 754 games.
