How the hell do you go 10/17 from 3, and 1/6 from the FT line?

If only free throws were at 26 feet.

Well thats the thing with Jr Smith. One day he can score 41 points the other 2 points. He is very inconsitent.

He's very streaky...can win you games and lose you games.

Nice player when he is on.

I wonder how should a player deal with this? I mean how can he improve himself so that he wouldnt be so streaky?

He probaly is streaky because of his shot selection. He has improved his shot selection but he still takes tough shots.

That`s what makes him pain in the ass for opposing team. No one - including Denver dont know when he`s going to have such night.

JR is such a fun/funny plaer to watch. You will see him pull up from 25+ feet and instantly think "why the f*ck is he doing that" then it will go in and you know he is gonna start shooting as soon as he touches the ball, and usually make an amazing shot or two.

But when he is off it can get ugly.

He needs some training from a former Nugget: Nick Van Exel. To this day, he still is my all time favorite free throw shooter.

Most his threes come from way further out.
Dude pulls up 3 feet from the line sometimes. Crazy stuff.

Isn't the NBA 3 point line at like 23.5 feet?

Quentin Richardson against Portland. He made 7/7 three points shots and missed FT

It's weird

He was awesome last night, some of those threes were ridiculously tough shots. I cringed when he was trying for the record at the end though...
