I fully expect Theiss and Baynes to shoot the three, and of course Horford. A big man who can defend and hit an open three is critical to our system
.

Baynes went to 3-21 from 3 during the season, or 14.3%. In the playoffs he was a completely unsustainable 47.8%. I think we need a much larger sample size to say Baynes should really be shooting 3's.

I agree- realistically he's probably somewhere in between. Considering the 3 wasn't really part of his game during the regular season I imagine those 21 shots weren't all quality looks. I have to imagine at least a few were buzzer beater type chucks.

Believe in the all 40% 3 point shooting lineup baby ;D

I would bet on our starting crew (Kyrie, Hayward, Tatum, Brown and Horford) going to be in the vicinity of 40% (probably a little over) from the three as a unit. They will rival the GSW from behind the arc IMO.

Pretty safe bet to assume heís somewhere between a 14% and 48% 3pt shooter.


As long as he mostly takes wide open corner threes, he will be pretty successful. Itís not like heís looking to take Ďem off the dribble at the top of the key.

correct. theis was working hard on his three game and still is. baynes will follow suit. if they can hit them with any type of consistency compared to Al based on similar attempts we will be very hard to defend this year

I mean if Stevens has accepted 4 threes a game from Smart his whole career, then I donít see why 1 or 2 three point attempts from Baynes would rock the boat.

Hopefully Baynes can have a Horford-esque affinity for 3-point shooting once he gets his reps up. At least being serviceable from the corner would be amazing.

I agree.  There's always a place for a bailout shot when the offense breaks down and up against the shot clock.  In fact, this is one reason the C's will be so good:  Just about everybody in the rotation can make a shot.  Philly can't claim this (looking at you, Ben Simmons).

I sure as hell hope not, lol ;D, as he'd be much better served to hone his post game, imo.

UmmmÖ No thanks.  I'm good with him rebounding, boxing people out, setting screens, and playing D.

He's the anti-Olynyk.

theis was known as a good 3 point shooter before he came to the celtics. his career 3 point percentage there was 37.1% and in his final season he shot 41%.
I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy ó not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

One year the Knicks shot very well from the three.

That year they would end every practice with a three point shooting contest.
