Trae Young is fastest player in NBA history to 350 3-pointers

With his six 3-pointers in the Hawks’ win vs. the Hornets on Monday night, Trae Young became the fastest player in NBA history to reach 350 career 3-pointers made, according to Elias Sports.

Young reached the milestone in his 140th game in the league, edging out Portland’s Damian Lillard, who did so in his 142nd game. In his second season, Young is the 10th player in Hawks history to reach the mark.

Young had actually been struggling from distance lately, going 3-for-28 over the past four games, before going 6-for-13 in Monday’s win, adding 31 points and 16 assists.
