Default One thing I've noticed about Arenas...

His whole game seems to be predicated on making 3s. If he doesn't make his 3s, he starts playing passive and deferring to others. On the other hand, when the 3-ball is falling, look the hell out!

Most players get confidence from going to the hole but he gets his from behind the arc before he starts slashing...

He leads the league in FTs made and attempted. . Regardless if his 3-point shot is falling or not, he still stays aggressive and attacks the basket.

I would say it's more of an overall focus and shot selection thing. The nights when he can't buy a basket, he still keeps shooting 3s.
