James Harden became the NBA’s all-time leader in missed triples with 4,457, for the 4,456 missed by Ray Allen, in the Brooklyn Nets’ 120-105 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans.

“La Barba” carried the team on his shoulder after not having Kyrie Irving, who cannot play home games due to his refusal to be vaccinated, and after the injury of Kevin Durant who could only play 12 minutes before leaving with a sore knee.

Durant will have to undergo different tests to see the extent of the injury after leaving the court on his own.

Harden scored 27 points and gave 15 assists to be the best in a game, which will be marked with the record for the most missed triples in NBA history. The shooting guard missed three of the five triples he attempted and became the player who has missed the most three-point shots in NBA history with 4,457.

Although also, he added a new positive record to his account. Harden moved to 10th all-time in free throws made after passing Adrian Dantley with 6,832. La Barba will now seek to beat the legendary Paul Pierce who has 6,918.

Brandon Ingram, with 22 points and eight assists, was the most outstanding player for the Pelicans who added their sixth loss in the last 10 games, and that they are still without their star Zion Williamson for several months.
