The first three-point shot ever


NBA'S FIRST
THREE-POINT SHOT

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

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 197980 season.

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.
