Kyle Korver's incredible streak of three point field goals made in consecutive games ends at 127 after failing to make a three pointer against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Korver shot the ball five times from downtown but failed to connect with a three point bomb for the first time in a game since November 2nd, 2012.

Portland played the Atlanta marksmen very tight off screens and allowed him no room to get off his usual shots that he has drained in his long streak of three point field goals.

The Blazers crushed the Hawks in Portland 102-78 and due to the thrashing Atlanta was receiving, Korver actually watched most of the 4th quarter from the bench.

Korver's streak ends at 127 and that is 38 ahead of any other player in NBA history, Dana Barros is second on the list with 89, the mark he set between the 1994-96 seasons.

The closest active player to Korver's benchmark is Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry, who is 77 games off with 50 in a row.

Korver will need to find his shooting touch again if the Atlanta Hawks are going to make a playoff push despite their current injury troubles. 

They are without All-Stars Al Horford and Paul Millsap who are on the treatment table and the Hawks will look to Korver to regain his rhythm from three-point land to get them back on track for the NBA post-season.
