How many games does it take for it to stopped being called a "streak"?
I could understand if it was 10 games or something, but it's been 41 games!
It's 3P shooting and hot streaks happen all the time, Tatum gave everyone in Massachusetts a boner with 51/47/83 splits in his first 41 games. Figures which he hasn't been able to match (or come close to) in subsequent full seasons, and that's with Tatum being a great FT shooter from the get go.
To automatically expect 40+% outside shooting in subsequent season with RJ's track record as a shooter until now is setting up for disappointment. So it is concerning that it takes RJ being this hot from 3 just to be league average efficiency as a scorer.
