Keegan Murray Sets NBA Rookie 3-Point Record

Sacramento Kings forward Keegan Murray made his 188th 3-pointer of the season in the third quarter of tonight’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers to pass Donovan Mitchell (2017-18: 187) as the NBA’s All-Time Rookie 3-Point leader.

Murray, 22, is the first player in franchise history to hold the All-Time NBA Rookie 3-Point record and is one of six players to record 180 3-pointers or more within a single season in franchise history. He currently ranks ninth in franchise history for made 3s in a season.

Murray currently ranks 11th in the NBA in 3-point field goal percentage of players who shoot more than six 3-point field goals per game. Among NBA rookies, Murray ranks third in 3-point shooting percentage (40.7%) and sixth in both scoring average (11.9) and total points (883).
