Brooklyn Nets New Year’s Resolutions


C.J. Watson: Stay outside.

I wouldn’t go so far as to call Watson a revelation at the backup point guard spot — he’s been serviceable as a shooter and defender, and a significant dip in assist rate likely comes from playing a chunk of minutes off Joe Johnson (who handles much of the Bench Mob creating duties).

But Watson’s now en route to his third consecutive year shooting far better from outside the arc than inside of it. In Brooklyn, Watson’s hit on 38.7% of his three-point attempts, as opposed to a paltry 36.5% inside of it. To put it in perspective, Watson scores 1.16 points per shot when he shoots a three-pointer and 0.73 points per shot when he takes a two. So please, Mr. Watson — stay outside.
