Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE/Getty ImagesJune 7, 1995: Years before they became television partners, Kenny Smith was a Houston Rocket and Shaquille O'Neal an Orlando Magic(ian?). And on this day 17 years ago, Smith buried an NBA Finals-record seven 3-pointers as the sixth-seeded Rockets shocked the Magic on the road in Game 1, en route to a four-game sweep and an NBA championship.
Bonus 1: Watch Smith bury four of his seven 3-pointers in this highlight reel.
Bonus 2: Watch Smith re-enact his record-breaking 3, 14 years later.
