The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight.
The perpetual clanging coming from this group makes an auto body shop sound like a library.
Among rookies averaging 10 minutes per game, Brooklyn big man Mason Plumlee is the only one making more shots than he misses. Cody Zeller, who is 7 feet tall, has gone 11 straight games making less than half his shots. Not one of the top eight scorers is shooting better than 41 percent.
Want more? Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Trey Burke are shooting 33 percent. Ben McLemore, supposedly the best shooting guard in the draft, is shooting 37 percent.
“I’m a shooter; that’s what I do,” McLemore said after a recent game.
