The prominence of the three-point shot in the NBA has only grown over the last few years.
Partly because of the success of Stephen Curry, the three-pointer has become more popular and more exciting too.
Right now the league is filled with players who are capable of scoring from all over the court, including from beyond the three-point line.
StatMuse dug into the numbers and found that since January 1, several players have been producing more from downtown.
Kawhi Leonard has been shooting 48.7% from the three-point line, along with Malcolm Brogdon.
Meanwhile, Joe Harris has had a 47.9% three-point percentage since the start of the year and Darius Garland is at 46.8%.
Highest 3P% since January 1st (minimum 50 3PA):
48.7 — Kawhi
48.7 — Brogdon
47.9 — Harris
46.8 — Garland pic.twitter.com/QstZz4pVFs

This is an interesting group of athletes.
Fans of the Los Angeles Clippers are elated to see Leonard do so well, especially after the very slow start he has had to the season.
Boston Celtics followers are also excited because Brogdon has been a great addition to the team and a possible Sixth Man of the Year winner.
Harris, still healing from an injury, is showing how much he wants to help his Brooklyn Nets while Garland’s output is just another example of why the Cleveland Cavaliers’ backcourt is one of the best in the East.
It will be fascinating to see who reigns supreme from the three-point line when the season concludes.
Will Leonard and Brogdon lead the way all the way until the postseason?
More importantly, will their talent from that part of the court help their teams make the Finals?NEXT: Kawhi Leonard Is Looking To Move The Clippers Forward
