Had the worst cold shooting streak in my life!!!
 
It was at a pickup game.

I can't believe how it happened. When I was practicing i hit like 9/10 (9 out of 10) jumpers. When the game started I went something like 1/10 and even air-balled like thrice!

How can someone who hits 9/10 in practice go for 1/10??!! I got a dressing down from my teammates for my exceptionally bad performance. Its like Trey Burke's performance in the summer league, horrendous!

I can't explained how it happened, maybe it was one of those days? Has anyone experienced anything like that before? I've seen other very good shooters in my area, and they never had such a bad shooting performance EVER, its like they hit half their shots (bad) or almost all of them. (good)

Shooting around and shooting in games are 2 different animals.

This but I'm kind of like this from game to game. I only play once a week and one week I'll hit everything I put up and the next I won't be able to make anything. I think some of it is mental and for me some of it is weight room related.

I have had cold streaks. They are frustrating. They are almost always related to sore legs from weight-lifting.

Without lift on my jumpshot, I have no arch.

When my shooting is off, I just avoid taking the shots. Stick to slashing, floaters, finding open people, etc.

This just happened to me yesterday. Was just shooting around with my friends, knocking everything down. The when 5 on 5 came, every shot was rimming out. I even airballed twice. My team won 4 games in row, but i feel i had nothing to contribute to it besides defense. Im over it now, but i honestly just got to stop over thinking in games. So yea...
