Suns’ Coach Seeking Better 3-point Shooting
Suns coach Jeff Hornacek expects the Suns’ shooters to make 3-pointers this season.
Hornacek’s hope is that (Goran) Dragic’s and (Eric) Bledsoe’s penetration will create better 3-point looks this season, and the Suns can also be more strategic about getting higher-percentage 3-point attempts, taking more corner 3s and fewer transition pull-up ones.
“These guys all think they can shoot it off the dribble or catch it on a full dead run and shoot a 3,” Hornacek said. “Percentages are low. So that’s the stuff we have to clean up. Keep them from doing that. If you’re on the run, go ahead and penetrate, kick out to somebody else.”
