    Could argue that OG's the one who shouldn't be taking 3s any longer. Shooting just 20.8% over the past 26 games.
    Yeah he's hit that wall harder than anyone else has. I would be okay if we shut him down until the playoffs and only play him for certain match ups. Get a vet from the buyout market to fill the void in the meantime.

    Siakam is really the only guy who is taking threes when he probably shouldn't, and recently he seems to have started driving more when he gets the ball out there rather than launching it

    Also he's shooting 36% from 3 his last 8 games. Hardly time to throw the parade, but a positive sign.
    I definitely believe in him figuring it out eventually, but as of right now I'd still rather have him drive the ball, especially since he's shown flashes of playmaking ability

    Obviously they're encouraging anyone who is open to take the 3 (for now). The problem is they shouldn't be encouraging some of them to be open at the 3 lol

    With this offence it really doesn't seem like they restrict anyone from shooting 3's provided it's a good shot and they aren't forcing it. Pretty incredible, but the strategy is working for the team.

    I have a hunch as he gets more comfortable shooting them, his release will be quicker & he'll be more precise. The fact he can hit them well from pretty far out is also why I can't wait to see the pick & pop used more with Jonas. Say it's the last game of the year.... why not let him shoot 5 or 6 threes?

    Well, Dwight Howard obviously hadn't been looking at film because he didn't even bother to walk out to JV TWICE on made 3's.
    When you have that much time, it's no wonder JV just took his time and spun the ball just the way he liked it lol....it won't stay that way as the opposing C will HAVE to respect his 3 just a bit more.

    I've also noticed he sometimes spins the ball in his hands to get it on the grooves he likes. I used to do the same thing when I was playing and wasn't having a hot day shooting. Always had to have the grooves a certain way. I think that will also come with more shooting time.

    I used to do the ball-spin thing myself with my bank shot.

    He stares at the rim to concentrate on the shot.... but you're right about about how he should get his feet ready on the catch.

    Jonas is shooting better from 3 this month than anywhere else.

    His flipper feet are probably too big to fit in bounds for that corner 3 lol

    Love JVs catapult 3 tho. It's so accurate. He just treats it like a free throw attempt. Ready...aim...fire

    Plus he'd be a lock for daily dbl dbls ..... if he got any run in these 4th quarters lol
