Courtney Lee is exactly what the Knicks thought he’d be. A three-and-D wing who’s hovering right around his career averages in points and field goal percentage. Despite a lame supporting cast on that side of the ball, the 32-year-old still plays solid defense.
Lee’s three-point shooting has been a tremendous asset in his first season with New York. He’s currently tenth in the league in three-point percentage. The problem is that he was having a hard time adjusting to being number one option as a three-point shooter.
Lee is 99th in total three-point attempts. Therefore he’s 72nd in makes. Even while attempting a career-high 3.5 per game from downtown, his head coach is understandably asking him to put up more.
When you remove Lee’s numbers, the rest of the roster is a combined 35.3 percent from downtown. For his career, Lee averages less than three attempts from downtown per game.
