The Houston Rockets won their fifth straight game on Wednesday, mauling the Washington Wizards 136-118 and in doing so broke the the NBA record for the three-pointers made in a game with twenty-six. Houston connected on 26 of their 55 shots from beyond the arc to break the previous record of 25 set by the Cleveland Cavaliers in March of 2017. Eight different Rockets hit from long range led by James Harden (6), Chris Paul (5) and Eric Gordon and Gerald Green with four each. Houston, which took Golden State to seven games in last year’s NBA Western Conference, have climbed to 16-14 after a slow start to get right back in the playoff race.
