Nationwide, the move of the line has dropped shooting ~ 1.3%. Our shooting 5% less is only somewhat attributable to the three point line. It's also attributable to 1) we have fewer pure shooters than in years past, and 2) some guys, like Paulus, are just having off years. The year hasn't finished, and it may well be that we simply got our misses out of the way earlier - our three point percentage for the season as a whole isn't final yet.

This is not a team that simply chucks it up from the perimeter and has no hope of scoring otherwise.
