The 3-point shot has become the centerpiece of the modern NBA offense in the regular season and playoffs both, but much of the Boston Celtics’ storied postseason runs took place before the advent of the 3 as an NBA phenomenon — never mind its ascent to dominance.

And while Larry Bird might have started his career in the very same game a trey was first recorded, even the Hick From French Lick did not rely too much on the shot. So the record books of which Celtics have sunk the most shots from beyond the arc is heavily slanted towards the modern era, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few surprises mixed into the list.

Can you guess the 10 most prolific 3-point shooters in Boston’s playoff history? Make your guesses and scroll down to see how you did.
