Who made the NBA's first three-point shot?
The three-point shot dates back to
1945 when the National Collegiate Athletic Association tested it in a game
between Columbia and Fordham, but it was not implemented in the NBA until the
NBA's first three-point shot was made with 3:48 left in the first quarter by
Chris Ford of the Boston Celtics on October 12, 1979 in a game against the
Houston Rockets at Boston Garden.
This was not the only historic moment in the game, it
also marked the debut of Boston Celtics' rookie Larry Bird.
The Boston Celtics went on to defeat the
Houston Rockets by a score of 114-106.
