Outside of Jonas Jerebko's 2-for-4, Jared Sullinger is actually Boston's leading three-point shooter at 44 percent (8-of-18). Thomas has taken far and away the most threes of any Celtic, 39, but has knocked down only 10 of them (26 percent).
Many C's fans will say this is a sign RJ Hunter needs to play more. However, despite draining this bomb last night...
...Hunter is just 2-for-9 (22 percent) this year, tied with Kelly Olynyk for second-worst on the team ahead of fellow rookie Terry Rozier (1-of-8). James Young? Zero attempts to this point in one minute of action.
It's still very early and we're working with an extremely small sample size--Sullinger will get worse and Thomas will almost certainly get better. It's also worth noting that the Rockets lead the NBA with 32.1 long-range attempts per game and are shooting an identical .284 from deep.
But if the numbers don't begin to change soon, Brad Stevens may have to reassess his game plan.
