Since January 13th, 2009, the Orlando Magic have held the NBA's single-game record for three-pointers. That night, the Magic bombed the lowly Sacramento Kings with 23 three-pointers in 37 tries, and five players made at least three triples. Orlando won by a 139-107 final.

After Wednesday's NBA action, Orlando no longer has that record all to itself. The Houston Rockets shot 23-of-40 from three-point range in their 140-109 win against the Golden State Warriors. Point guard Jeremy Lin sank five of those threes, while All-Star shooting guard James Harden and Lake Howell product Chandler Parsons drilled four apiece.

Warriors coach Mark Jackson instructed his team to foul on Houston's final two possessions in order to prevent it from breaking the three-point record.
