I wish he was hitting his threes at a 37% clip or at least 35%, but otherwise these are great numbers.
Yeah, I would actually like to see him back off the three a little. He's 4th in the league at 3PA per game, but is only shooting .298 for the season. That's not good.
Shooting .325 from deep over the last 9 games sounds a little more encouraging, except that he's only 12-49 (.255) in his last 6. The best we've seen from him in a single game is .500 from three, which is a good percentage, but Lee and Lance are both shooting close to that for the season, at .458 and .455 respectively.
He's been much better taking it to the hoop. I think the 3 point shot comes around. He's too good. Wish he was a little less streaky but it what it is. If he was, he'd probably have cost 20 million per.
In spite of the fact I rag on his defense, it's been decent too, but he does get lost a few plays again, Which he could tighten that up, but who knows. I think the carelessness would stop with a coach who held him more accountable. It's not even bad, just maybe we'd win a few more tight games without it.
I agree that he's been a lot more effective when putting the ball on the floor, and his defense has been better than expected.
From three, he still looks to me like more of a volume shooter than a sharp-shooter. I guess he's streaky, but if he's still only going 5-10 on a "hot" day, I'd prefer to see what else he could do with those scoring opportunities instead of just launching it.
True, a different coach might change things, but so would a different role. I've maintained for a while, that he'd be a fantastic 6th man, but instead we're asking him to be our #2 and I think some of his shot selection problems might be related to him trying to do too much and forcing it. Regardless, he's likely going to be our starter for the next 3 years.
