Mills now all-time NBA leader for bench threes with one team

930 threes off the bench for Patty, putting him ahead of Manu Ginobili's 929, Dell Curry's 800, JR Smith's 652 and Jason Terry's 611.

Patty had 21 today off the bench against Portland including 5/7 threes. So far, the 2021 season is his best - averaging 14.2 (previous best was last year's 11.6) and 43.7% 3P.

Congrats to Patty I guess but gee they keep some ordinary stats in the NBA lol

All this says is that the players weren't good enough to start.

Also tells me that he is one of the best bench players over a long period.
Can change the tone of a game quickly.

While the stat may sound a bit odd, it's still an achievement considering in fact that all those names listed were indeed good enough to start, especially Ginobili as he was a 2 or 3 time all star. Nevertheless, well done to patty great to see him doing particularly with a younger Spurs group that is still playing solid, hopefully he keeps this up into the Olympics.

It's also a stat that will most likely never be beaten. Most players will move to another team for more money/better opportunity or be moved on by ownership in todays game.
