The NBA's best shooter outscored the opposing team 11-0 in 68 seconds

Kyle Korver of the Atlanta Hawks is having one of the best shooting seasons in NBA history and on Monday night he put that shooting on display for one memorable 68-second stretch against the Milwaukee Bucks.

With 5:50 left in the third quarter, the Hawks were nursing a five-point lead. That’s when Korver started doing Kyle Korver things, hitting four straight shots and a little over one minute later that five-point lead was a 16-point lead (via the NBA).

Bucks head coach Jason Kidd was helpless and could only stop Korver by eventually calling a timeout.

Since 1979-80, only six players in the NBA have shot 50-40-90 (50% from the field, 40% from 3-point range, 90% from the free throw line) for an entire season. Korver has a chance to become the first player to ever shoot 50-50-90. He’s currently at 49.4%, 49.8%, and 90.2% respectively.

However, all wasn’t great for Korver on this night. Outside of that one stretch, he did not hit another shot all night (via ESPN):
