Re: Tshonis and 3 pts shots...
If you didn’t know who Reggie Miller was and he showed up on your team in a shooting slump, you’d question why he’s allowed to shoot that way. T Hardaway used to shoot a knuckleball that barely looked like it was going to make it above the rim, but still
hit 35-40% from NBA distance. Tsohonis shot looks the same (unorthodox) as when he was at Wash/VaTech other than the part about going through the basket. Roetegard has got form, would help if he could get it up a little quicker, he’s gotta be pretty open to get it off.
I know his % in the past from 3 was decent for a guard, but his shot from beyond 8 feet is looking really bad right now. Like any mechanics he had on it in the past are gone...its an ugly shot. Conversely I am impressed with his ability to battle inside and make difficult contorting layups look easy.
3's are the #1 concern right now with this team, then rebounding, which we clearly did well v Oakland. Jadon is hitting his 3's ok, Murray needs to start swishing a few, Rotegaard is the guy I would count on at least his misses the shot looks nice, good arc and spin...Hunter and George maybe these guys have something in them from deep?
The pace we play at is helpful to cover our 3 pt shortcomings.
Not that he’s been showing it for us, but this teams gotta a big void when it comes to shooting from distance and is counting on him to eventually contribute in that manner. Hope he’s going to be available.
Where was Marcus Tsohonis today?
