Nash Struggling from the Free Throw Line?
Amid what could be the greatest shooting season of his career, Suns guard Steve Nash is having more trouble with the unguarded straightaway 15-footer than usual.
Nash entered Wednesday night with 87 percent free-throw shooting. That was 13th-best in the NBA, but it is Nash’s worst clip since the lockout-shortened 1999 season, when he made 82.6 percent of his free throws.
“I just haven’t had a great rhythm at the line and just missed more than I usually would,” Nash said. “That’s it. I don’t really worry about it because I feel like I could get hot, so to speak, and make a bunch, but it’s been a little bit of a struggle for me.”
