Eddie went 6-of-9 tonight from three-point range to move his shooting percentage from deep to 44.4. That’s important for two reasons. First: He passed Danny Ainge to set the record for the best single-season three-point percentage in Boston history; Ainge shot 44.3 percent in the ’86-87 season. (Of course, as soon he was informed that he had passed Ainge, he asked to come out of the game. Eddie is hysterical. You can laugh at that stuff in a game that doesn’t matter).
Second, and obviously far more important, Eddie House becomes the 10th player in NBA history to attempt at least 340 three-pointers in a season and hit 44 percent of them–a very exclusive club I completely made up. Here’s the rest of the list:
Eddie finished with exactly 340 attempts thanks to jacking up nine tonight. In all seriousness, Eddie’s a great shooter who has, at long last, found a stable role on a team that really needs him. Keep it up in the playoffs, Eddie.
