Alec Burks, of Utah, shoots with Derrick Williams of Minnesota at left as the Minnesota Timberwolves face the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, Saturday, Jan. 21, 2012.

The best Jazz season for 3-point shooting was 1999-2000, when they shot 38.5 percent. That year, Jeff Hornacek was second in the NBA with a 47.8 percent, the second-highest percentage in Jazz history.

The worst Jazz season for 3-pointers was 1985-86, when the Jazz were a dreadful 20.1 percent. The Jazz only took 169 3-point shots the entire season, making 35. Bobby Hansen led the team with 17-of-50 that year. Pace Mannion was the only other player to make more than five, going 8-for-42. That was John Stockton's second NBA season and he went 2-for-15.

Stockton made by far the most 3-pointers in Jazz history with 845, more than 300 ahead of second-place Bryon Russell.

Comment on this story

Mehmet Okur has the two best seasons for 3-pointers made with 129 in 2006-07 and 114 in 2007-08.

Hornacek has the best career 3-point percentage as a Jazzman, 42.8 percent, slightly ahead of Kyle Korver at 41.6.

Korver set an NBA record by making 53.6 of his 3-pointers in 2009-10, obviously the best in Jazz history.

The worst Jazz 3-point shooter among players who made at least one in their careers was Milt Palacio, who made 1-of-16 (6.3 percent) in 2005-06. That was slightly better than Jerry Eaves (1982-84) and Jim Les (1988-90), who each went 1-for-14 over two seasons.
