In last year's Western Conference Finals, the San Antonio Spurs held a 2-0 lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder before losing four straight and ending their season in a cloud of heartbreak and second-guessing.
In Games 3 and 4, Spurs guard Danny Green went two-of-9 from behind the three-point line, forcing his head coach, Gregg Popovich, to lose confidence in him. In Games 5 and 6 he totalled less than eight minutes, missing both his three-point attempts and scoring zero points.
Green's disappearing act wasn't the only reason San Antonio failed to advance to the Finals, but it's certainly the most forgotten. Especially by Green, who's responded by shooting the ball terrifically all season long.
Green is shooting 43.9 percent from behind the arc, good for fifth-best in the league. It's astounding, considering he's also attempted the 19th-most attempts in the league.
Only Shane Battier and Martell Webster have connected on more corner threes this season (Green's sunk 43.1 percent of his attempts). If anyone's looking to bounce back after a horrendous showing in the 2012 playoffs, it's Danny Green.
