Against Stanford on Nov. 20, North Carolina’s Kenny Williams made six three-pointers in the first half. Wednesday night, former Tar Heel Wayne Ellington one-upped him.
Playing for the Miami Heat, Ellington made his first six three-point attempts of the game and knocked down seven total against the Portland Trailblazers. Ellington finished with 24 points.
The best moment of the night came when Ellington buried his sixth three and seventh straight field goal. After he made the shot, Heat reserve Udonis Haslem pretended to faint on the sideline, falling into the arms of a teammate.
