Why the Denver Nuggets should pursue Terrence Ross: 3-point shooting
The Denver Nuggets finished the 2021-22 season ranked 18th in 3-point percentage after shooting 35.3 percent from downtown. Thanks to a career 36.1 percent clip from distance on over five three-point attempts per game, Terrence Ross represents the kind of high-volume shot-maker the Denver Nuggets could use.
Lackluster 3-point shooting is inexcusable with a player like Nikola Jokic running the offense and creating shots for others, but personnel played a big factor in Denver’s frequent inability to capitalize on open looks. Ross would certainly help the Nuggets in this department, along with the return of Porter Jr and Murray.
Ross is more than capable of producing a scoring explosion, and his 3-point shooting usually serves as the catalyst for such performances.
In fact, Ross has hit six or more triples in a single game 17 times in his career. On those 17 occasions, he has shot under 50 percent from deep just three times. Overall, Ross nailed a remarkable 58.8 percent of his 3-point attempts during those games.
When the Human Torch gets hot from three, there is no stopping him from getting his shot off and doing it in style.
