Buddy Hield with 17 Points in the 1st Quarter vs. Charlotte Hornets, 02/28/2021

If first impressions matter, then Buddy Hield has made one of the best from beyond the arc since the league introduced the 3-point line in 1979.

The Sacramento Kings’ shooting guard sank his 1,000th 3-pointer in Sunday’s game against Charlotte. Doing so in just his 350th career game marked the shortest time in NBA history a player needed to reach 1,000 makes from distance, besting the previous record held by Stephen Curry (369).

The former sixth overall pick entered the game having connected on 40.4% from 3-point range over his career, 12th-best among all active players and 33rd all-time.
