The Long Two: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander's improvement and the Hawks' struggles



Article Summary:

His most noticeable progress came from behind the 3-point line, where Gilgeous-Alexander dialed up his volume and accuracy on a far more difficult shot diet. At 6-foot-7, Gilgeous-Alexander covers huge swaths of ground when he steps back, and his length gives him a high release point despite not getting much elevation on his shot. There’s a feeling of complacency to the way Atlanta runs its offense; where the league’s best scoring teams work for better shots, the Hawks tend to settle for mediocre ones. Despite being one of the NBA’s best 3-point shooting teams, the Hawks currently own the 10th-worst effective field goal percentage in the league and the third-worst expected percentage based on their shot distribution.
