Lakers tie franchise record for three-pointers in win over Nuggets

US PRESSWIRE

An unlikely player tied the record on Friday night as the Lakers went on to win 122-103.

The Los Angeles Lakers moved to .500 on the season with a blowout victory over the Nuggets on Friday night. L.A. scored 122 points, and their performance on offense tied one franchise record.

As this search on Basketball Reference shows, the Lakers' 17 three-pointers tied a franchise record set in 2003. The team did make 19 three-pointers back in 2006 against Washington, although that was a game that needed overtime to be decided.

The unlikeliest of Lakers tied the record last night. As the game was winding down, big man Dwight Howard drilled a three from the corner. Howard entered the game 1-for-33 from behind the arc, with his lone make coming back in 2007 with Orlando. Here is a video of the shot Howard made.

So how did L.A. get to 17 threes? Jodie Meeks came off the bench and drilled seven, while Antawn Jamison hit five of his own. Metta World Peace went 2-for-7 from behind the arc, while Howard, Chris Duhon and Darius Morris all had one. Surprisingly, Kobe Bryant did not get in on the action, and went 0-for-3 from deep.
