Default Phoenix Suns aim to get better looks, shoot more 3s

When the Suns were going good -- making the playoffs, et cetera -- they were knocking down 3-pointers.

They led the league in 3-point percentage for four straight seasons from 2004-08 and again in 2010, shooting no worse than 39.3 percent. Coincidently, the team made the playoffs each of those five seasons including three trips to the Western Conference Finals.

Since that last postseason appearance three years ago, the Suns' longest playoff drought since 1985-88, the team has seen a noticeable drop in accuracy from behind the arc.

And while hitting 3s does not guarantee a team a playoff spot, it is an area of the offense head coach Jeff Hornacek focused on immediately once he was hired. Of course, he inherited a club that ranked 28th in the league last season, making 33 percent of its 3s.

Back when the Suns had Stevie Nash, Qrich, Eddie house, Barbosa, Bell, Jrich. all quality shooters from 3's. We lost everyone since then and now our best 3 point shooter is going to be a 30yo power forward coming back from injury, not looking bright.
