Joe Harris is first Brooklyn player with rare 3-point feat

Joe Harris of the Brooklyn Nets is the first player in franchise history to log in at least three 3-pointers in six consecutive games.

Joe Harris started his 3-pointer shooting streak on Dec. 14 in the Nets’ win over the Washington Wizards. In his streak, the 27-year-old never shot below 40 percent. More importantly, the Nets only lost one game during his six-game hot streak from downtown.

In his third season with the Nets, Harris is averaging 13.3 points on 49.7 percent from the field and 47.1 percent from 3-point country, to go along with 3.5 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game.

Teammate Jared Dudley commended Harris for his 3-point shooting ability. The veteran compared him to JJ Reddick, particularly his off-ball movement and expertise coming off screens. Per Tom Dowd of Brooklynnets.com:

“Joe Harris now is the modern JJ Redick now basically,” said Jared Dudley after the Lakers game. “He’s taking over, coming off a lot of ball screens, can put it down. The thing about him compared to JJ, I think we all can say his layup package, going into the lane, finishing, is one of the better on our team.

Joe Harris has a chance to extend his streak to seven games on Wednesday as his team goes up against the Charlotte Hornets.
