James Harden

Philadelphia 76ers guard James Harden is now tied for third place with Reggie Miller on the all-time 3-pointers made list and will have the opportunity to pass him on Thursday against his former team, Brooklyn Nets.

Harden could have solidified his spot as the third all-time leader in successful attempts from beyond the arc, but he went 1-of-5 from deep in Monday’s win against the Chicago Bulls. His lone triple of the night came in the first quarter, but it was enough to tie Miller on the prestigious list.

Harden, like Miller, now has 2,560 3-pointers made in his career, and is on pace to pass Ray Allen (2,973) in the next three to four seasons. Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (3,101) holds the all-time record, which he achieved in December at Madison Square Garden.

Among active NBA stars, Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard (9th all-time, 2,143) is the only other player besides Harden and Curry to be in the top-10 of all-time. LeBron James (11th), Kyle Lowry (16th), Klay Thompson (18th) and Paul George (19th) are the only active players in the top-20. marca
