As the NBA 2011 lockout continues, there is some enjoyment in reliving great moments in the sport, such as those individual accomplishments and All Star performances that generate intense excitement.
Basketball, as we all know, is a game where the goal is to put the ball through the hoop more times than the other team. However, sometimes the score is worth one point, sometimes two points and, less often, three.
That 3-point “downtown” shot can easily make or break a game, and has done so on many occasions.
Two players in NBA history have scored 12 3 pointers in a single contest, Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall. The highlights of their games are below.

However, Ray Allen holds the all-time mark for shooting outside the arc, taking the 13-year old record from Reggie Miller, and did so playing against the Lakers during the 2010 NBA Championship Game.

Hoping that the lockout ends soon so that fans, whose devotion to the sport supports both the owners and the players, will be able to watch more records broken with superstar performances by their faves.
Over For Now.
