A closer look at House’s streak

Eddie House [1] has been unstoppable from behind the arc, knocking down eight three-pointers against the Sacramento Kings [2] this week. So just how well is House playing? It’s the best basketball of his nine-year career [3].

House isn’t just topping his personal bests. He and Ray Allen [4] are the only two players this season to hit eight three-pointers in a single game. He is also shooting better this season than those who once ruled from behind the arc.
