Duncan Robinson breaks a record in Game 5 tonight
Duncan Robinson’s story from being a Division 3 player to going un-drafted to now starting on an NBA Finals team will never get old.
He has been the Heat’s most reliable shooter from beyond the arc and is outplaying NBA veterans on a consistent basis and tonight was no different.
Robinson went 7 for 13 from 3 point land, and in the process, broke Gary Neal’s record for most 3s by an undrafted player in an NBA Finals game. Neal held this record with six 3s in 2013 on the Spurs.
