NBA 3-Point Shooting Analysis

Tatum and Lillard don’t just shoot, their sharpshooting skills are as impressive as any of the Association’s top marksmen. Lillard is fourth in threes this season (191) and Tatum is second (183). Both have career connections rates of over 37 percent.

Herro and Haliburton both have sunk 10 threes in a single game this season. Simons, who is currently recovering from an ankle injury, has buried nine times and sank the second most threes (196). He also converted 38.1 percent of his long-range looks.

Hield, who is the league leader with 230 triples, is spending an insane 42.6 percent on his triples. Markkanen has 164 triples with 41.3 percent shooting. Huerter is close behind, with 143 and 39.2, respectively.

It’s possible for anyone to win this event and it would not be surprising. Nevertheless, there are four shooters who stand the best chance of winning the crown.

Hield is the favorite for a reason. Hield is an all-caps ELITE shooter and has won the event before (2020 when he was a Sacramento Kings member).
