Kyle Korver didn't waste any time as he extended his consecutive games streak with a made three-pointer to 78 games in the first quarter against the Denver Nuggets. Korver ties Dennis Scott for third place on the all-time list and moves 11 games behind Dana Barros for the most all-time.
Korver connected on his first three-point attempt of the night taking the pass in transition and knocking it down from the top of the key with 9:36 remaining in the first quarter. The bucket extended Atlanta's lead to 12-4 and forced an early timeout by Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw. The Hawks are off to strong start for one of the first times this season.
