His mechanics on his 3 point shooting is smooth af. If he becomes a legit floor spreader and continues to defend at this level he's a huge piece of our future.


Opened this thread to say the same thing - his 3-point form looks great. With more reps it could develop into a real strength.

It's kind of ridiculous how much better he looked offensively last night to the start of the year. He couldn't hit a layup to start the year, and yesterday he drove aggressively with success while also raining treys. That's a remarkable turnaround in such a short period of time. I guess that time off really helped him.

“We could have gone forever. (Raptors management) kept knocking on the door and I was like, ‘A couple more minutes.’ Because we were really into it."

I am curious about your stats. What is your source?

I refer to Defended FG% on NBA.com and the Raps are:

Boucher 40%
OG 41.8%
Precious 43%
Fred 45%
Gary 46.6%

I am curious why my numbers are so weirdly out from what you posted.

Precious is still only just 22 years old. He's been great on defense. He just needs more 'finishing moves' around the bucket. He's getting blocked a ton and if he's not blocked, you can tell he's worried he will be.


It reminds me a bit of Jakob when he was here. It took him a while to figure out when to layup and when to dunk. Eventually he started using his length horizontally to create space at the rim, instead of trying to go over top of guys. I haven't watched much of him in SA, but since he's averaging 13ppg on 64% shooting, I'll assume he's figured it out.


In SA he's finally shooting the ball a bit and taking it really hard to the rack. He's got a push shot like Birch now.

Let Siakam, OG, & Scotty share the offensive AND defensive load. I don't want a high-usage guy too tired to defend.

I think you nailed it. He's trying to do too much. If he cut it down to just a few things he'd be rock solid such as; cuts, open shots and put-backs. He's a smart dude. He'll figure it out.

Since returning from injury (4 games)

HIs shot selection has improved dramatically.

To his credit, Previous has come back improved since his injury/benching.

Look forward to his continued development!

Precious is playing under a lot more control than previous.

He looks more decisive as well.
