Rockets’ James Harden moves past Jason Terry for 5th on all-time 3-pointers list
Houston Rockets superstar James Harden has moved past Jason Terry for fifth on the NBA’s all-time 3-pointers list.
Harden accomplished the feat on Saturday against the Boston Celtics in Boston:
James Harden just moved past Jason Terry into 5th place all-time in 3-point field goals (2,283). Only players ahead of him are Ray Allen (2,973), Reggie Miller (2,560), Steph Curry (2,492), and Kyle Korver (2,428).

Harden is once again on his way to leading the league in scoring for the third consecutive season. The Rockets star is averaging 35.2 points, 6.4 rebounds and 7.3 assists in 55 games while shooting 44.3 percent from the field, 36.3 percent from beyond the arc and 86.3 percent from the free-throw line.
Harden is averaging almost 12 free-throw attempts per game, proving his ability to draw fouls is second to none.
Love him or hate him, there’s no denying James Harden is a scoring machine who should be mentioned alongside the likes of Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
The Rockets traded Jeremy Lamb, Kevin Martin, a 2013 first-round pick (Steven Adams was later selected), a 2013 second-round pick (Alex Abrines was later selected) and a 2014 first-round pick to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Harden.
It’s safe to say Houston won the trade by a landslide.
