Raja Bell in shooting slumpPosted by Inside Hoops
Jody Genessy of the Deseret News reports:
Bell’s 7.9 points per game average is the lowest since he scored 3.1 ppg during the 2002-03 campaign in Dallas.
More concerning, though, is how Bell hasn’t scored more than five points in seven games, and that he has only hit four of his last 26 field-goal attempts.
Bell can pinpoint the problem — or the “hitch” — in the release of his shot.
“There’s a rhythm thing that’s going on with me and so the drills like that help me to remember to keep it up,” Bell said. “When I miss, I usually miss flat.”
The back-to-basics drills remind him to follow through high and to leave his hand up.
