Here we are in 2013 and things haven't gone quite as planned for the Los Angeles Lakers. The injury bug has decided to make an unwelcome visit to an already troubled locker room, and their sub-.500 record has them looking up at the Clippers and Warriors (not to mention only a handful of games above the soon-to-be-Seattle-bound Kings, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports).
Much has been made of their struggles that have led them to this point, so maybe it's time we flip things and take a look at something they aren't doing as bad in.
That's right. You guessed it: three-point shooting.
Percentage-wise, the Lakers float near the middle of the pack in three-pointers (35.7 percent, 14th in the NBA), but in three-point completions and attempts, they're near the top of the league averaging 8.9 threes per game on 25.1 attempts (good enough for fourth and third in the league, respectively).
Let's take a look at D'Antoni's best weapons when it comes to shooting from long distance. If the Lakers continue down this unfamiliar road of losing, he may have to rely on them more and more in hopes that they can keep the team afloat.
