NBA Handicapping: Washington Wizards can't guard against the three

12.16.2015     09:33 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here's a stat that you would think has nowhere to go but down. The Washington Wizards are allowing 41% from three this season. In recent seasons, the worst teams allowed around 38%. The last team to allow over 40% for a season was the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers who finished 19-63. Last season, the Wizards were around league average at 35% allowed. Tonight's opponent, the San Antonio Spurs don't take a lot of threes (19 per game) but they make them at a high clip (37%, 4th in the league).


“We’d set an NBA record if they stopped the league today,” Wizards point guard John Wall said after practice at a local church in San Antonio Tuesday. “And it’s all about simple stuff, man. Overhelping, doing too much when you don’t have to. You need to have the IQ to read certain things.”

“It starts defensively with us on the ball,” Wizards Coach Randy Wittman said. “When we get broken down and collapse the defense, that’s where we get hurt with the kickouts to open shooters. So we’ve got to continue to do a better job, obviously.”
