Watch: Arron Afflalo drills eight threes against Bucks

The Magic swingman set a career-high with 36 points in a win over Milwaukee on Wednesday.

Arron Afflalo had the night of his life Wednesday, scoring a career-high 36 points to lead the Orlando Magic past the Milwaukee Bucks, 94-91, at Amway Center. Afflalo tied a Magic record with five three-pointers in the third quarter alone and he finished with eight on the night. Video of all eight of his triples is embedded in this post.

"It was fortunate that my three-ball was going down tonight," Afflalo said following the contest, which ended the Magic's three-game losing streak. Magic coach Jacque Vaughn called his performance "courageous," as he willed his team back from a 19-point deficit to earn the win.

Afflalo became only the second player since the 1985/86 season to score 36-plus points while taking 15 or fewer field-goal attempts and six or fewer free throws. In addition, the hot-shooting performance ranks him seventh in True Shooting percentage among the 20 NBA players scoring 20-plus points per game in 2013/14, according to NBA.com/stats. That combination of volume and efficiency has buoyed the Magic to a 4-5 start despite the absences of Glen Davis and Tobias Harris.
