The three-point line is not Evan Turner's friend
On November 4, Evan Turner went 1-for-2 from downtown in the Celtics two-point loss at Indiana. Two days later, Turner knocked down 2-of-4 threes in the C's rout of the Wizards. In the game after that, he went 1-for-4 from deep during Boston's win in Milwaukee.
From 11/4-11/10, Turner connected on four three-pointers in three games (4-10, 40%). Unfortunately, he's hit only one since:
Oof....Evan Turner has made just 1 of his last 24 three-point attempts.— Adam Himmelsbach (@AdamHimmelsbach) December 16, 2015
One successful three-point attempt in the last 35 days. Yikes. Turner is shooting 4.1 percent from beyond the arc during the stretch. Double yikes.
For the season, he's 5-of-37, a 13.5-percent clip. It's easily the worst in the NBA for any player who's taken at least 25 threes this year (Jerami Grant is second at 10-53 for 18.9%, and oddly enough his brother Jerian is third, 5-26 for 19.2%).
Take the ball to the hoop Evan.
