I agree with this. I don't see us taking terrible shots. I do, however, see us working for open 3's on offense instead of making the goal to be getting easy layups.
End of the day, you take what the defense gives you. When you don't have players that put pressure on the defense, that's when you become a 3 point hoisting team. If our guards step up and start driving the lane, we'll be way more dangerous as a team. In the games where JR and Felton are attacking, our offense looks so much better.
