C’s make franchise history in first quarter vs. Pelicans originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
New Orleans had no answer for Boston’s shooting from beyond the arc. The C’s went 10-for-16 from deep in the first 12 minutes, tying the franchise’s record for most made 3-pointers in a quarter. The 10 3s also tied for the most by any team in a quarter this season.
Making the feat even more impressive is the Pelicans entered Friday’s game with the second-best 3-point defense in the NBA. Unfortunately for them, the Celtics have been virtually unstoppable from long-range all season. They currently rank first in points per game (120.4), first in 3-pointers made per game (15.9), and fourth in 3-point percentage (38.7).
Boston finished the first half 14-for-27 on 3-pointers. The franchise record for 3s in a game is 27, set 13 days ago against the New York Knicks.
