MIAMI (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks have broken the NBA record for 3-pointers made in a game.

Sam Merrill connected on the team’s record-setting 28th 3-pointer of Tuesday night’s game in Miami with 6:07 remaining, giving the Bucks a 131-86 lead over the Heat.

Milwaukee finished with 29 3′s and won 144-97. The previous record for 3′s in a game was 27, set by the Houston Rockets against the Phoenix Suns on April 7, 2019.

Milwaukee used 13 players and 12 made at least one 3-pointer.

The only one who didn’t was reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. Jrue Holiday made six 3′s and Donte DiVincenzo was 5-for-6 from deep.
