I think it's dumb. For one, you're already in the record books. If you're tied for the record, you're still listed. Two, if he wanted to avoid the record, maybe devise some kind of strategy during the game to prevent it from happening?
What message are you really sending if you already got the record tied? "Oh, I'm instilling toughness, we only allowed 23 three pointers."
Also - damn 23 threes? That'd take us about 7 games to get that.
