ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The Orlando Magic have set a record for most 3-pointers in a single season.

Vince Carter made the Magic's 838th shot from beyond the arc Wednesday night just before halftime against the Philadelphia 76ers. That surpasses the mark of 837 set by the 2005-06 Phoenix Suns.

Carter's shot from the corner just in front of the Magic's bench came with 20.9 seconds remaining in the second quarter. It was also Orlando's eighth 3-pointer of the game.

Carter's shot make gave the Magic 2,231 attempts this season. The 2008-09 New York Knicks attempted a record 2,284 last season.
