Miami Heat: The 10 Best Three-Point Shooters in Franchise History

1. Ray Allen

It should come as no surprise that “Jesus Shuttlesworth” is first on this list as he is the NBA’s all-time leader in three-pointers made (2,973). Allen hit arguably the biggest shot in Heat history against the San Antonio Spurs in Game 6 of the NBA Finals with 5.2 seconds left, that sent the game into overtime. Miami went on to win the championship as Allen left a lasting impression before his departure. He hit 255 threes in his two seasons with Miami (2012-14). Allen won the three-point contest in 2001 as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks. His shot is considered one of the best textbook forms ever seen by a player.

Honorable Mentions

Mike Miller – Miller spent three seasons with the Heat (2010-13) and made 169 triples from behind the arc. He was an instrumental component in the 2012 Finals versus the Oklahoma City Thunder. Let’s not forget his memorable three-pointer while missing a sneaker. The Heat amnestied Miller after the 2013 season. He is currently a member of the Cleveland Cavs as he was also recruited by “King James.”

Shane Battier – Battier was another intrical player during Miami’s late championship runs as he hit very important threes in his tenure as a Heat player (2011-14). Not only would he occasionally cover the opposing team’s best player and take critical charges, he was a set shooter who you could rely on down the stretch. He finished with 271 triples while playing in Miami.

Damon Jones – Jones only spent one season as a Heat player (2004-05) as he drained a career-best 225 threes. Jones competed in the three-point contest in 2007.

Eddie House – House was one of Miami’s all-time fan favorites who could catch fire as soon as he got in the game. He spent four seasons (2000-03, 2010-11) with the Heat, making 177 three-pointers.

Rashard Lewis – Lewis’ best days were behind him when he joined Miami in 2012. His playing time was sporadic but he did have some stints where he showed flashes of his “old self,” as he hit 97 threes in his two seasons with the Heat. Lewis made 1,787 threes in his NBA career.

Jason Williams – “White Chocolate” was not as flashy and quick as he once was when he played for the Sacramento Kings and Memphis Grizzlies, but his three-point shot became a more consistent weapon as he got older. Williams finished ninth all-time in threes made (304) in his three seasons with Miami (2005-08).
