Three pointer, trey, Amir-branded summer and winter threes; those beautiful buckets from downtown have been showing up on the regular in 2014 for the Raptors.

Looking back on this week alone:

The Raptors hit eight 3-point shots in a single quarter vs. the Magic to tie a team record.

Throwback Thursday: The Ghoul ol’ Days
