Durant on Kyle Korver's NBA record streak of 91 straight games with a 3-pointer: “That's amazing. I was thinking about that the other day. I don't think I could last 50 games (making) one 3-pointer a game. Ninety, that's just an amazing, amazing accomplishment.”
HAWKS HOPING TO BUILD SPUR-LIKE CULTURE
For the past 18 seasons, Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer has been working under Gregg Popovich in San Antonio.

Reggie Jackson has hit a 3-pointer in eight straight games, a career-high.
