Duncan Robinson became the fastest player in NBA history to reach 500 career three-pointers. Robinson reached the 500 mark in just 152 games. Remarkable feat because Damian Lillard is the next closest to Duncan Robinson. Lillard reached the 500 mark for three-pointers made in 199 games. Robinson also had a great game against the Cavaliers in Cleveland. Robinson scored 20 points on 7 of 10 shooting in 21 minutes of play. He also hit 6 of 9 front the three-point line.
