While the Atlanta Hawks continue their multi-game winning streak in the Eastern Conference, Kyle Korver might be one of the main reasons that we have multiple Atlanta Hawks in the 2014 NBA All-Star game.
As the Hawks won their twelfth straight game against the Chicago Bulls last night, Korver was asked about his ability to shoot transition three-pointers and Kyle gave the below response as noted by Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
Korver said last night that a lot of his 3-pointers came in transition. When told some are starting to call such a shot a 3-point layup, he said: “It’s good to have balance (in transition). Guys are running for layups and I’m running for a 3. I’m better at the 3’s than the layups. I have to stick to my strengths.”
As long as Mike Muscala continue to do the three-goggles, I’m all for Kyle Korver shooting more three-pointers:
