With this shot, Joe Harris becomes the Nets; all-time leader in 3-pointers made.

With his third 3-pointer Wednesday night vs. Miami, Joe Harris became Brooklyn Nets’ all-time leader in 3-pointers made, passing Jason Kidd’s record of 813 made threes.

Harris reached the milestone with a corner 3 at the 11:09 mark of the third quarter. It took Harris a total of 349 games to set the the record — 157 fewer than Kidd. Ultimately, the milestone came in defeat, though, as the Heat won 106-93.

Before the game, Nets coach Steve Nash praised Harris’ dedication to his craft.

“He’s an elite shooter for a reason,” Nash said. “His dedication and discipline to do it every day is outstanding and that’s why he is where he is. I don’t think anyone thought when he was in high school or college he’d be the Nets all-time leader in 3-pointers, so that’s just a tribute to how dedicated, how much he’s willing to sacrifice to continue to grow as a player and be in that type of category.”

The top five list of Nets sharpshooters, in terms of made 3-pointers, now reads as follows: Harris (816), Kidd (813), Kerry Kittles (687), Vince Carter (638) and Joe Johnson (516).

Harris, who has led the NBA in 3-point percentage in two of the past three seasons, is the only player in Nets history to lead the league in 3-point percentage and he also hold the Nets’ career record for 3-point percentage (44%).
