    Highest 3pt% in playoffs?

    Googled this but couldn't find it anywhere. Anybody know what the best 3pt% is in post season history? (Talking average, not single series or per game)

    3-Pt Field Goal Pct >= .520 and 3-Pt Field Goals Per Game >= 1.3 and Games >= 8

    ^Those are somewhat arbitrary parameters. Minimum of 8 games (so played in at least two playoff series) and minimum of 1.3 3-pointers per game (so they're hitting a significant number of 3s). That turns up this:

    Raising those parameters to a higher standard:

    requiring 3-Pt Field Goal Pct >= .500 and 3-Pt Field Goals Per Game >= 2 and Games >= 10

    Turns up this:

    Another way to look at it, all the guys who made 40 or more 3-pointers in one playoff run:

    Thanks for the help, much appreciated.

    On that last one, Ariza and the Jet caught me by surprise.

    To me, the most impressive overall is Ray. "Best" is a vague term, but no matter how you break down the specifics (when it comes to 3-point shooting) he does well across the board. After watching him tear up the Nuggets, though, I think Curry should be the real deal and have a chance to match/surpass Allen by and by. But definitely Fish gets props for having what should probably be considered the best single postseason 3-point shooting performance which actually contributed (bigtime) to his team winning the championship.

    Hey DenButsu,
    Ya know, speaking of Fish (though going a little off-topic here) wouldn't that be an interesting thread, something like: "Biggest Finals (or entire Playoffs) Performances Ever By Non-Stars"? Has such a thread been done before?
