    It's not just about percentage. We need more attempts from our guys.

    At this point, it's not even about capable shooters, it's about guys that will actually take the shot. Too many times guys are passing up open looks. Just shooting will help keep the defense honest. If they know you're not gonna take it, they just play off you and that's that.

    Shoot the fcking ball!!!!!

    It's Ibaka. He's shooting 45% from deep with 2 makes.

    Those percentages are going to come back down though. The two players that need to start hitting threes are Powell and Carroll. They're the only wing shooters right now

    Where can we find stats on how our players shoot in open shot situations vs. off the dribble? Because I'm guessing we're not great either way. The Knicks game I saw Ibaka and 2Pat take quite a few wide open 3's and some were down right ugly. I'm not sure if it's a situation where there is an issue with the system or if it's an issue of not having good shooters.

    I think the idea you're talking about is a "rhythm" shooter. A guy who needs his feet and knows that he's a first or second option on the play. Those type of guys need a Bud or Pop type of structured and predictable offensive sets. Carroll is a perfect example of this. If he even takes 2 small steps to get his feet set, his shot is off.
    I like the terminology you used there and although we do not have a Atlanta/spurs type of a offense with kyle and demar we have sorta a poor man's LbJ effect in that they draw a double team which creates a rhythe opportunity for our secondary shooter sometimes with one pass but usually better with two. I saw a vid of how one reporter noticed how our efficient offensive earlier in the year has been scouted and defenses prepared to take them away. Some were plays were DC was involved as the shooter.

    He's either red hot or ice cold. Personally, I'd like to see him play bigger and throw it down more when his shots not falling instead of getting down on himself. He's big enough to be able to make an impact inside and outside.
    You see him do this effectively once and a while and I agree it should be more of a staple of his game.

    If we ran actual plays for Bruno & he knew his shot better (His timing is getting closer, but his shot just looks off at times), I'd have no issue implementing him & seeing if that would help us. He's good enough to play at least 10 minutes of NBA action a night at this point.
    I'm a Bruno fan but I don't think he's ready for this team, right now. I think he's ready for 10 mins on the Nets.
    Last night Casey subbed the 905 on with 1.5mins left. If I'm masai, I definitely putting that in my reasons to fire list. Also that DD and Lowry play so many mins. It's an injury risk, growth stagnation and waste of assets.

    At this point we might as well throw Bruno out there and have him huck 3s

    Oh well it is what is. We took offense for granted.

    Ibaka, I think. Which is bad.

    Patterson since his initial injury has been shooting three's in the low 20%'s on the road but is around 40% at home, I was hoping he'd come through tonight.

    Ibaka looks like the only one who wants the ball on the perimeter. I've seen Norm and Delon and Patterson pass up open looks a lot. Maybe a confidence issue. But Ibaka is that guy who needs to get hot from outside early to make a big impact through out the second half of the season.

    We say this a lot, but overall the %'s of the 3-pt role players on this team are fine. Patterson and Carroll, for example, have some year-to-year variation but generally produce very similarly to what they did pre-Toronto.
