Kyle Korver of the Hawks is on the brink of breaking the NBA record for consecutive games with a 3-pointer made. He currently sits at 89. That’s the most exciting thing going on with the Hawks right now, and frankly, it is a big deal.
ESPN’s Darren Rovell attempted to diminish this potential feat on Twitter by downplaying the fact that the Hawks were hyping up this moment:

Well, the Hawks caught wind of this Tweet and fired back in a much more respectful, yet impactful way. Advantage: Hawks Twitter.

That was in response to the ESPN Stats & Info Twitter account making note of Korver’s streak.
