It took him a while but Kyle Korver's incredible three point shooting streak is still alive and well after the NBA Global Game at the 02 Arena in London on Thursday.

Playing on a different continent looked like it seemed to upset Korver's regular rhythm as he looked sluggish, missing his first seven attempts from downtown. 

And it took until the fourth quarter for the Hawks number 26 to extend his run to 108 games in a row with a bucket from beyond the arc. 

During the run, which officialy started on the 2nd of December 2012, Korver has netted in three different countries during the streak. 

The Hawks were beaten by a much better Brooklyn Nets team 127-110 on the night, and all in all Korver had a pretty terrible game. He shot 1-9 from the field, collected a meagre 4 assists, had zero rebounds and even managed a turnover on a night where Joe Johnson put up 29 for the Nets, and he was ably assisted by Paul Pierce's 18 on the night. 

Blatche ended the game with a double double, netting 20 points from 10 of 18 shooting, and dominating in the paint for a total of 14 rebounds.

But KyleStreak continues and marches on to Monday where Korver and the Hawks will fly back across the pond and take on the Miami Heat at Phillips Arena in Georgia.
