Last week, Kentucky guard Jamal Murray nailed 79 of 100 three-pointers during his Celtics workout, breaking the Brad Stevens-era pre-draft drill record of 77 set by Gonzaga’s Kyle Wiltjer earlier this spring.

On Monday, the record was bested once again — this time by Oklahoma guard and Naismith player of year Buddy Hield — who knocked down 85 of his 100 triples.

“It went well,” Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge told the Boston Globe. “I would say there were no real surprises. Buddy Hield is a really good shooter and a hard-working, well-conditioned player. He’s a great kid and a guy that’s ready to step in and play. Very, very, impressive.
