89 reasons to make the Atlanta Hawks your favourite NBA team

Kyle Korver is on one hell of a run with the Atlanta Hawks.

The 32-year-old swingman has hit at least one three-point shot in 89 consecutive NBA games – equalling the all-time record set by Dana Baros in January 1996.

Korver returned from a four-game absence to drain the long-ball on Wednesday night, with the rib injury that put him on the sidelines seemingly behind him.

But, whilst all Hawks fans were delighted that he managed to equal the incredible record, one person in particular was thrilled to see the No.26 back on the court – if anything to get her husband out of the house.

"I'm glad it's done," Korver said in a press release sent to GiveMeSport.

"It was a long period of time. I think the happiest person was probably my wife. I was just not fun to be around the last five days at the house!"

Korver had a quite brilliant night for the Hawks, scoring a season-high 23 points in a 107-97 victory over the LA Clippers.

And, he’s got the chance to write his name in the history books against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night.

His three-point run began in the second game of last season, when Korver hit a three in the win over Oklahoma City. 13 months later, and few would believe he’s still going.

The big question is, will he still be on the run when the Hawks travel to London to face the Brooklyn Nets in a regular season game at the O2 in January? We can only hope.
