Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports:
The Bucks’ season field goal percentage number is 44%, which ranks 26th among the 30 National Basketball Association teams. Milwaukee is shooting better than just four teams – Charlotte, Indiana, Chicago and New Jersey.
It’s a major source of concern for coach Scott Skiles, who believes the Bucks will improve their marksmanship.
“That’s the difference between good college shooters and pro shooters,” Skiles said. “When you’re open in your range and your feet are set, that thing has to go in at a high percentage. I would tell you that most of the really good pro shooters, when their feet are set and I’m talking about (being) wide open, 75% of the time that thing should be right in the bottom of the goal.
“At other times, you’ve got to take off-balance shots and you’re driving, you don’t get fouled. So we need all our guys.”
