Bobcats Implementing ‘Kill spot’

“Kill spot’’ is a Dunlap-ism that now pervades the vocabulary of the Charlotte Bobcats.
Any drive to the rim is of high value because it both creates a high-percentage shot and comes with the bonus of potential free throws. A 3-pointer, particularly a corner 3, is a good idea because if you make it, you get a one-point bonus, and if you don’t there’s a decent chance for an offensive rebound.
All that seems pretty obvious, and yet it’s not how the Bobcats always operated. Dunlap and his coaching staff broke down video from last season and discovered the Bobcats might have defaulted to guarded, 2-point jump shots more than any team in the NBA.
