Spurs’ Green sets NBA Finals record for 3-pointers

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green set an NBA Finals record for 3-pointers Sunday with his 23rd of this series against the Miami Heat.

Green broke Ray Allen’s 2008 mark with his fourth 3-pointer of the night early in the second half of Game 5. It was the fourth time that the once-unheralded swingman has hit at least four from long range this series.

Green was shooting 68 percent from 3-point range this series after breaking the record.

Allen, who now plays for the Heat, set the previous mark as a member of the Boston Celtics.
