In the era of the three point shooter, there are many players who stand out. Some of those standout players are below in my ranking of the best three point shooters in the NBA. Keep in mind that all stats are for this season

#1. Stephen Curry

This probably comes as no surprise due to the fact that the reigning MVP is arguably the greatest shooter of all time. Although he has slightly regressed this year, Curry has not lost his touch.

Three pointers made: 134

Three point percentage: 40%

#2. Eric Gordon

After being signed by the Houston Rockets earlier this year, Gordon was a favorite to break out this year and he has not disappointed. Gordon is currently leading the league in three point field goals made and is a frontrunner for the sixth man of the year award.

Three pointers made: 141

Three point percentage: 43%

#3. Klay Thompson

The other splash brother is arguably playing better this season than his counterpart Steph Curry. Thompson has shown that he can light up the scoreboard in bunches after scoring 60 points in only 30 minutes earlier this season.

Three pointers made: 110

Three point percentage: 39%

#4. Kyle Lowry

Lowry has shown significant improvement year after year, yet is still one of the more underrated players in the NBA.

Three pointers made: 118

Three point percentage: 45%

#5. Courtney Lee

Lee has been the most efficient three point shooter this season and he would be higher on this list if he were shooting at a higher volume.

Three pointers made: 46

Three point percentage: 47%

#6. Nick Young

Swaggy P has always had a personality, but he is really starting to put it together on the court.

Three pointers made: 99

Three point percentage: 44%

#7. J.J. Redick

The Duke product has been one of the best shooters in the NBA ever since he entered the league and this year is no different.

Three pointers made: 88

Three point percentage: 43%

#8. Zach LaVine

Mainly known for his high-flying capabilities, LaVine is making himself known as a deadeye shooter as well.

Three pointers made: 100

Three point percentage: 42%

#9. James Harden

A frontrunner for the MVP award this year, Harden has been arguably the top offensive player in the league this year.

Three pointers made: 114

Three point percentage: 35%

#10. C.J. McCollum

McCollum has had to step up his game lately with Damian Lillard out due to injury. He has done just that as he is having an excellent season so far.
