NBA.com defines "midrange
" as all shots outside the paint that are inside the 3-point line.
In Jordan's 63 point game against the Celtics' #1 defense, 12 of his 22 made field goals were 2-point jumpshots outside the paint (midrange):
3 more jumpshots were made slightly inside the paint... Overall, 15 of Jordan's 22 made field goals were jumpshots.
And that was just Game 2... In Game 1 of that series (his 49 point game), 9 of his 18 made field goals were jumpshots outside the paint (plus 1 more jumper that was slightly inside the paint):
So in Games 1 and 2 combined, 21 out of his 40 made field goals were 2-point jumpshots outside the paint (midrange), with another 4 jumpers coming just inside the paint.. Overall, 25 of his 40 made field goals were jumpshots.. Contrary to what many people think, Jordan was an elite midrange jumpshooter from the outset of his NBA career.
