The Toronto Raptors defeated the New York Knicks Saturday afternoon at home, and shooting guard Danny Green reached a career milestone.

Green, one of the best three-point shooters in the NBA, hit his 1,000th career shot from beyond the arc against the Knicks.

The Raptors acquired Danny Green from the San Antonio Spurs over the summer in the blockbuster Kawhi Leonard trade. Green entered Saturday averaging 10.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game while shooting 43.8 percent from the field, 45.1 percent from three-point land, and 100.0 percent from the free-throw line.

Green began his NBA career with the Cleveland Cavaliers back in 2009. He played one season in The Land before signing a free agent deal with the Spurs in 2010. The New York native spent eight years with San Antonio and was part of the 2014 championship team which defeated the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals.

The most shots Danny Green has made from beyond the arc during a season was back in the 2014-15 campaign with the Spurs. Green made 191 shots from deep and shot 43.6 percent. The sharpshooter scored nine points Saturday versus the Knicks in 21 minutes. All three of his field goals were from distance.

The Raptors are 12-1 on the season and look like the best team in the Eastern Conference with Leonard and Green in the mix.
