Metta World Peace Becomes 6th Player To Reach Rare Feat

Metta World Peace made a three-pointer in the fourth quarter to reach 12,000 points. He is the sixth player in league history to reach 12,000 points, 4,000 rebounds, 1,000 3-point field goals, and 1,500 steals. He is the sixth player to reach that feat. He joins Paul Pierce, Jason Kidd, Gary Payton, Reggie Miller, and current teammate Kobe Bryant.
