WATCH: Former UNC star Wayne Ellington ties Miami Heat record for 3-pointers in a quarter

UNC fans are well aware that Wayne can make it rain. So it should come as no surprise that the former Tar Heels sharpshooter has cracked the Miami Heat’s record books.

On Monday night against the Atlanta Hawks, Wayne Ellington tied the Heat record for most 3-pointers in a quarter with six in the second quarter of a 104-93 victory.

The record was initially set by Brian Shaw in 1993.

This is exactly the reason they call Ellington “The Man with the Golden Arm” in Miami.

Ellington finished with 20 points on 6-of-8 shooting from the 3-point line.

Ellington was the Most Outstanding Player of North Carolina’s 2009 national championship team.  Ellington drained 7 of his 10 3-point attempts in the Final Four that year.

After bouncing around as a journeyman playing for six teams in eight seasons, Ellington has found a role and a home in Miami.

Ellington joined the Heat last season and converted a team-best 149 3-pointers as they rallied from a 11-30 start to finish 41-41.

With the way he helps space the floor and his unselfish attitude, Ellington is the perfect fit in the Heat’s well-respected culture.
