The previous record belonged to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Interestingly, Cleveland set the record against the Atlanta Hawks in a 127-94 Cleveland win on November 15, 2014. In the first quarter, the Cavaliers had nine straight three-pointers, and it was LeBron James, who led the Cavaliers attack with three three-pointers.
This was the second NBA record set this week pertaining to three-pointers. On Saturday, the Utah Jazz set the NBA record for most three-point shots made in the first half, as they made 18 in a 137-91 win over the Orlando Magic.
