Considering he's already had games of 5-11, 4-7, 4-8, 4-9, and 5-9 from three this year, maybe the problem is your perception of how he used to shoot from deep?
85% of the threes he takes now are good shots, and he almost always swings the ball when it's not a good shot. Relax.
He's always been streaky and as a result, I just don't trust him to keep it up. His % took a hit tonight, so it's slowly creeping back down to .350. And id say more like 65% are good. He has too many stupid deep ball 3s, and for someone whose fg% is so bad, he really needs to control himself like he did last yr. LOVE how he's driving to the rim more, though.8Def want to see more of that.
But even after going 4-18 from 3 the last two games, he's still shooting better from 3 than last year, over 37%. Then take into account that he takes more end of shot clock or quarter heaves than anyone on the team. He's become a good shooter from deep, the only ones I dislike is when he isn't squared up.
And c'mon now, you can't possibly think 35% of the threes he takes are bad shots. If he's shooting 37% from deep with over a third of his shots being bad ones, then he's an even better shooter than i thought. This is just a classic case of perception versus reality. I'm guilty of it with tons of players as well.
