The midrange shot has all but disappeared. Is this Morey's idea? I really don't understand this.

In the past two games the Rockets are 17-65 from behind the arc (their opponents are 15-41)...

Morey better find a consistent outside shooter if this is the style of offense he wants to run.

please refer to this thread:
"Rockets don't like "in-between" shots"

All your questions should be answered there.

I posted this in the Scola thread a few games ago. I copied it here, but removed my comments about Scola fitting in with this system. The data is from NBA.com advanced stats and doesn't include the last 2 or 3 games.

Quote:
Does anyone read or listen to Morey's interviews? He built this team to be a high efficiency scoring team. They dont want anyone taking midrange jumpers.

The goal is quick scores in transition, high % points @ the rim(Asik, Smith), points and fouls attacking the rim(Harden, Lin) and 3P shooting(Harden,Parsons,Defino, Douglas, Morris. Patterson, Lin) to spread the floor or Harden and Lin. All of our top seven 3P scorers are shooting above 35% from 3P except Lin.

Percent of total shots taken from midrange this year.
Smith 1.8%, Asik 3.8%, Delfino 12.3%, Parsons 13.0%, Morris 14.7%, Lin 16.7%, Douglas 16.9%, Harden 19.8%, Patterson 36.1%

Percent of total shots taken @ the rim this year.
Asik 88.3%, Smith 87.6%, Lin 44.1%, Harden 40.5%, Parsons 38.8%, Morris 30.6%, Patterson 28.4%, Dourlas, 27.3%, Delfino 13.2%

Percent of total shots taken from 3P this year.
Delfino 69.1%, Douglas 45.8%, Morris 44.2%, Parsons 42.5%, Harden 31.6%, Lin 28.5%, Patterson 20.3%
As you can see almost all the regulars take 1 out of 3 shots from 3P.

I may be wrong, but doesn't the threat of a solid mid range game make 3pters and shots in the paint much easier to attempt? I don't think you can just assume that all these different types of shots are not in some way interrelated in terms of how it affects their overall efficiency.

We need to rely less on three's but the mid range jumper is not the answer.

The Harden Iso, the Lin drive and kick, the transition points, and the three's can all be countered by good teams. We need some more easy high percentage buckets to fill in the gaps of our offense. The problem is that Asik is not built to run the PnR and he has no real post game.

We dont have any players skilled enough to make them it seems. Ppat shoots the best from mid but,McHale camps him in corners, lin is just a worthless shooter , harden is extremely limited on offense and his shot isnt consistent, parsons is just sad when shooting anywhere on court, no consistent shooters off bench, we are just lacking skilled players

With the lack of skilled shooters we wouldn't be efficient i guess. We are lacking that star player that can create his own shot while shooting high% someone like melo

I like the plan to take lots of three pointers. We just need to get players that are better at it.
