Former UNC standout–shooting guard Wayne Ellington–etched his name in the Miami Heat’s all-time record book on Wednesday night in the team’s season finale–hitting eight three-pointers and scoring 32 points in a win over the Toronto Raptors.
Ellington’s proficiency from long distance helped him break the Heat’s all-time single season record for made three-pointers in a season, as he finished with 227 for the year.
This comes after he also recently broke the NBA record for most three-pointers made in a single season for a player coming off the bench. In 77 games this season, Ellington has averaged a career-high 11.2 points per game.
The Heat enter the upcoming NBA playoffs as the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference, and will take on the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round.
