    Default Worst FG%?

    We shoot 43.7% from the field which is tied for worse in the East. Yet we're still above .500 and in the playoffs right now.

    Wonder what we would be like if we start shooting better?

    By the end of the season, no way are we below 22nd or so in FG%. Jack and Al are gone.

    Hopefully that means more wins as well!

    I think you can count on it. I think we have a TEAM again.

    The Pacers don't have the players to shoot a high FG%.

    JO shoots an alarmingly low percentage for an elite big man.
    Tinsley hasn't been above 40% all year, and tries to shoot himself out of slumps which is so annoying.
    Granger shoots pretty well, but when he shoots a lot, it's often a bunch of threes.

    Until JO can get at or around 50% the team will struggle in this area. Luckily they play a slow down pace and defend well, so they are in most games.

    With SJax and Harrington gone....I'm looked at our stats since the trade ( starting with the Jan 18th game against the Heat ):

    Over the course of 8 games, we are 5-3 with only 2 road games, we average

    36 FGM / 80 FGA
    45% FG pct

    and have scored an average of 98.5 points while keeping our opponents to 94.5 points.

    Admittedly....we play much better defense at home..and likely score more efficiently with a home crowd.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Good, I thought you were going to post something directly disproving what I said!

    Did something happen to Dunleavy and Tinsley that I didn't hear about?
