Kyle Korver didn't waste anytime getting back into the swing of things after missing four games with a rib injury. Korver knocked down his first look at a three-pointer extending his consecutive games streak to 89 and tying Dana Barros for the all-time record. Korver will have a chance to set the record on Friday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Korver suffered the rib injury in last week's matchup against the Orlando Magic. He missed four games but was back in the starting lineup on Wednesday. Getting Korver back gives the Hawks back a much needed weapon. Korver into Wednesday's game averaging 11.7 points per game while shooting 52 percent from three-point range.
