About Last Night: Welcome back, Korver – NBA.com

On the night they welcomed back Kyle Korver to Salt Lake City, the Utah Jazz set a franchise record with 20 3-pointers in a 139-105 rout of the Spurs.

Korver came off the bench and contributed 15 points in 15 minutes, knocking down three of four attempts from deep. In all, 10 Jazz players hit 3-pointers, led by Donovan Mitchell (4), Joe Ingles (3) and Korver (3). Georges Niang hit the record-breaking 3-pointer with 1:33 left in the game.

Korver, who played for the Jazz from 2007-10, helped Utah achieve season bests in shooting from inside (60.7 percent) and outside the arc (60.6).

“His confidence is contagious,” Donovan Mitchell said. “His presence gives us spacing and helps everybody.”
 

After the ceremonial postgame dousing, Korver revealed a surprising fact: “That has never happened to me in my entire life … I’ve never had Gatorade dumped on my head, but I’m glad it was tonight.”

Meanwhile, the Spurs have lost three of their past four games, with each loss by at least 30 points. Prior to this season, San Antonio suffered just nine such losses during the Gregg Popovich era (since Dec. 1996).
