Miami Heat sniper Duncan Robinson became the fastest player to make 500 3-point shots in the history of the NBA on Saturday versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. This is a remarkable achievement for a player like Robinson, who has worked tremendously hard to make it in the NBA over the past couple of years. 

Robinson was huge for the Heat in their finals run last season. He has become a reliable scorer and is often the role player that provides 3-point scoring for the Heat. According to Stat Muse, Robinson’s 500 threes were scored in only 152 games—which has never been done by any other player in the league, not even by Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry

For the Heat to make it far in the playoffs once again, role players like Duncan Robinson must step up. The deadly sniper adds a different dynamic to the team, especially when he’s clicking. The best part is that he’s only 27 years old and can achieve many more records like this in his career. Robinson has also made himself a pretty appealing player in this modern basketball era that’s fallen in love with the 3-point line. 

Prior to Saturday's game, Robinson is averaging 12.9 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. The Heat need him now more than ever if the defending Eastern Conference champions want to get out of the play-in tournament picture and get a guaranteed playoff spot.

They still have a chance to do just that as the Heat go up against the Charlotte Hornets, Dallas Mavericks, Minnesota Timberwolves (twice) and an important back-to-back versus the Boston Celtics in the next coming days.
