    With the game tonight against, not sure if you have noticed or not, we made 3 out of 34 3pts attempts.

    P.Beverly, 2 out 6
    J.Harden, 1 out of 8
    T.Ariza, 0 out 7
    D.MO, 0 out of 1
    C.Brewer, 0 out 4, again CB sucks this season
    J.Smith, 0 out of 3, shall we tolerate this guy for the whole season?
    J.Terry. 0 out of 5, OMG


    if you see how our Gs shoot this season on 3pts, it really sucks, especially c.Brewer, J.Terry, P.Beverly,

    T.Ariza is good once a while, no damn

    I mean we used to be so dependant on 3pts, shall we call it our sharp weapon any more?

    The fact that we won the game despite this atrocious shooting is a huge positive. You guys can complain alll you want about Morey philosophy this Mauriball that, but a lot of teams in the NBA would take the shots we took tonight. Outside of a few boneheaded ones ( which are annoying at least and infuriating if taken by smith) Most of those threes were taken in the flow of the offense and they were OPEN. As much as you guys might hate it, its not a smart move to pass up open shots.

    3/34 isn't going to happen frequently. Its called an aberration. Imagine if Bev got hot and hit 2 of his misses... same thing for trevor... or james. If we made 5 more threes that's 15 more points. We won, played very good defense, and moved the ball well on offense. The only real negatives were poor shooting and turnovers. Sure we will play better teams , but we also wont go 3/34 again. That's just bad luck

    very very good analysis. However:
    If it were last season, i would like to see more 3pts from our Guards. It seemed they shot decently last season. If you see the current whole season, Not only particularly this game, our Guards shot very poor on the outside premier. It seemed they were not confident.
    At least, i would like to see more drives into the paint from the PGs like P.Beverly, C.Brewer, J.Terry...

    Your math needs work.

    5 threes = 15 points.
    15 twos = 30 points.

    Law of averages, looking forward to the game we get 22/34 to make up for it.

    Maybe last year we were making a lot more shots than we should, and this season is just a mechanism to regress back to the mean? :D
