Cavaliers shooting guard Kyle Korver erupted for 22 points off the bench in Cleveland’s 113-104 win over the Indiana Pacers on Feb. 15.

He also became the seventh player in NBA history to make 2,000 three-point attempts, but the game included another rare feat, as well.

Korver dunked.

After the game, he joked that he “tries to get one a year.”

Korver blamed his old teammate Jeff Teague for robbing him of an opportunity, but he was able to capitalize on his next chance, and “now the pressure’s off.”

Korver will not be spending the All-Star Break participating in the dunk contest, but he’s happy to meet his quota and can rest before the grind leading up to the Playoffs.
