The Cavs connected on 25 triples, the most ever in a regular-season game since the 3-point line was introduced in the 1979-80 season. Kyle Korver, acquired from the Hawks in January, hit the record-setting 3 and gave the Cavs enough of a cushion to hold on for the victory. LeBron James led Cleveland from the outside, hitting 6-for-10 from 3. The Cavaliers made seven 3-pointers in each of the first three quarters and four in the fourth, finishing 25-for-46 (54.3 percent). They became the first team in NBA history to have six players make at least three 3-pointers in a game, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. James was joined by Korver (3-for-7), Kyrie Irving (5-for-8), Derrick Williams (3-for-4), Richard Jefferson (3-for-5) and Channing Frye (3-for-6). Iman Shumpert  added a 2-for-6 showing from the outside.
