SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – With the NBA regular season shortened by 10 games due to the COVID-19 pandemic, setting the record for any single-season statistical total should be out of the question. But don’t tell Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell.

The All-Star guard is well on pace to break the Jazz record for three-pointers made in a single season belonging to teammate Joe Ingles at 203.

Mitchell has 159 made threes through just 46 games and is on pace to 80 more before the regular season is through. That would be the fourth-year guard’s total to 239 after the Jazz play the Sacramento Kings on May 16, the team’s final game of the regular season.

Ingles is the only player to break the 200 threes threshold for the Jazz, breaking the previous record of 178 set by guard Randy Foye in 2017-18.

At Mitchell’s current rate, he’ll break Ingles record in the next 13 games. Speaking of Mitchell’s rate, his current average of 3.5 three-pointers made per game is on pace to crush the team’s existing record. Before this season, only Bojan Bogdanovic had averaged at least 3.0 three-point makes per game for an entire season, which he did last year before missing to the close to the year after undergoing season ending-wrist surgery.

Guard Jordan Clarkson is on pace to join Bogdanovic along with Mitchell if he keeps up his current 3.0 threes per game average.

League-wide, Mitchell is also looking to join elite company. The Jazz star is on pace to become the sixth player in NBA history to shoot better than 40 percent while attempting more than 8.5 threes per game. Mitchell is one of three players looking to join the elite list this year, a feat accomplished previously by Steph Curry, Damian Lillard, and Davis Bertans.
