(The Sports Xchange) - The Cleveland Cavaliers have been on a three-point binge since the first of the year. On Friday, they took it step further and set an NBA record in the process.
The Cavs, who have made at least 10 in their last 13 games, made 25 three-pointers in the 135-130 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night in Atlanta. That topped the regular-season record of 24 set on Dec. 16, 2016 by the Houston Rockets against Orlando.
The Cavs also made 25 against the Hawks in the playoffs last year.
"It should have been more," Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said.
Kyrie Irving and LeBron James combined for 81 points to lead the effort. Irving made five three-pointers and scored 43 points. James had six three-pointers and scored 38.
Derrick Williams, Richard Jefferson, Channing Frye and Kyle Korver had three three-pointers apiece.
