46% of MB's shots are three pointers

Post by Turtleneck on Sat Dec 16, 2017 11:19 pm

Seems like an odd stat for a player that is so versatile. I know after the Duke game he reflected on not being aggressive enough, but do we see this as an issue in B10 play or the Tournament?

Bridges is currently shooting 34% from 3pt range, and that is where close to half his shots come from. Last year he was taking fewer attempts - not by much - and shooting a higher percentage.

I think he should be benched in favor of McQuaid the rest of the way, or maybe see if Byrd can come back to the program.

Well TN let's not forget the ankle. He has been more aggressive off of the dribble the past 2-3 games.

But yeah Miles has not lived up to expectations thus far. I think he's ok with that. I think he wants to win a Natty.

I think this is a big reason. No reason to really push himself right now. They can win these games without big contributions from MB.

I am hoping to see him become more aggressive down the stretch, and sort of think that what we are seeing now is more strategic than anything else.

I agree, but think that has already been happening the past couple of games. I think today he just got outplayed by a 22/23 year old guy and he lost his shit a little bit. Walker got into his head a little bit.

Probably going to get shunned for this but I have a weird feeling Bridges won’t be a great pro. Then again, if one can hit 3s and play solid defense one can make it.

But as wags said it’s extremely early. I expected more out of him than what he has shown this year. I don’t think he has the handles to break a defender down 1on1 and get to the hoop, it seems like most of his drives are off fast breaks or cuts.

He's not in the same position this year, Turtleneck. We need to move him back, slide Ward back underneath, and bench J3. It worked so well last year that we'll do fine with only 4 players on the court at one time.

I had something typed out but it's gone now.

I agree. I love the kid, and I love that he came back and why he came back. We'll see how his game improves as the year goes on. I hope it improves lots.

Do you need a fucking dictionary, Herbie? Maybe you do since you're really fucking stupid.

I think he needs to take fewer early shot clock contested 3s, but other than that I'm fine with his shot selection. They're still figuring out rotations and how everyone fits together, I think he'll get more easy 2pt opportunities as the season goes on.

Plus, if Izzo keeps Ward's minutes down, more time for Miles at the 4. I'm not advocating that, just looking for silver linings.

In the Southern Utah game towards the end it seemed like Bridges was taking over towards the end. He was driving and drawing a lot of fouls. I didn’t watch yesterday’s game but seems but I agree with Dwags still a lot of season left.

You only posted this to impress DWags with your empathy by kissing his ass. So shallow.

He's going to play in the NBA. He doesn't "need" to play the 3 for MSU to play in the NBA. You're just making shit up now.

Working on his ball handling (at the 3) will make him a better NBA player. It's difficult to argue with that, although I'm sure you'll try.

And defensively, having him guard a 3 will also help him in the NBA.

Not to mention, Bridges at the 3 allows Ward and Jackson (and
Schilling/Goins/Carter) to defend the 4 and 5.

Let me know if you need any more help.

The percentage has not changed. Still 46.

Edit: Math was off. The percentage has changed. It moved down to 43.

50% of Bridges' FG attempts should be dunks/layups, 25% 3 pointers and 25% mid-range.

Miles don't need no stinking mid-range. 60% dunks, 40% threes.

Worst starter. Cringeworthy when he went into hero ball mode last night, stepping out of bounds and had no chance at the lay up anyway.

Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
