It’s been a prolific couple of days for Tar Heels attempting 3-pointers.

In addition to the 10 3-pointers from UNC’s men’s team in the 91–87 Saturday win over Duke and 11 from Carolina’s women’s team in Sunday’s 76–69 victory over No. 4 N.C. State, a couple of Tar Heels in the NBA found the range on Sunday.

Reggie Bullock’s highlights start at 5:36 in this video.

Reggie Bullock collected 21 points and a career-high-tying seven 3-pointers in his best game of the season and Cameron Johnson had 17 points and four 3-pointers on Sunday.

In addition to the perimeter success, Bullock also had a career-high four steals in the New York Knicks’ 109–103 loss to the Miami Heat. Previously, he had three steals in several games. He put up a season-high 15.0 game score, his best in two seasons.

It was his first game with seven 3-pointers since doing it for Detroit against Minnesota on Dec. 19, 2018.

The four 3-pointers in the Phoenix Suns’ 100–91 home win over the Boston Celtics tied Johnson’s season-high and the 17 points marked the fourth game with more than 16 points this season. His 12.8 game score was his fourth-best this season. Johnson has the ninth-best average game score off the bench in the league at 10.1.

After a streak of excellent games, Harrison Barnes had a rough shooting day in the Sacramento Kings’ 113–110 road loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Barnes scored a season-low four points on 1 of 7 shooting, although he pulled down a season-high 12 rebounds, his most in the last two seasons. The 4.6 game score was his third-lowest of the season.
