In NBA by Harris AhmadzaiLeave a Comment

20. Allan Houston


Three-pointers made (through 12/12/2016): 1,305 (34th all-time)
Three-pointers attempted: 3,247
Three-point percentage: 40.2%

Houston could fill up the score-sheet in a hurry and the three-point shot was his most efficient weapon. A career 40 percent shooter from downtown, Houston was the best outside scorer for the Knicks during their deep playoff runs in the 90’s.

19. Dirk Nowitzki


Three-pointers made (through 12/12/2016): 1,707 (16th all-time)
Three-pointers attempted: 4,481
Three-point percentage: 38.1%

Standing at just about 7-feet tall, Dirk is widely considered the greatest big man shooter to ever grace the court. Dirk’s high release point and deep range have given defenders fits since he’s been in the league. While he does a majority of his work from the mid-range, his three-point shot is what separates him from the rest of the power forwards in the league.
