What is wrong with Kevin Pangos?
It is true he has been suffering from turf toe and nagging ankle problems, but in the past five games, Pangos is shooting just 36.5 percent from the field.
More staggering is that Pangos, usually considered among the top three point-gunners in the country, is shooting a lowly 31.2 percent from beyond the arc.
Many believe the success that Pangos celebrated early on in the season was due to David Stockton taking over the point guard role, which allowed Pangos to move to shooting guard and focus more on scoring.
Pangos, however, is most devastating on offense when he is running the show. With the ability to change speeds and armed with a killer first step, Pangos is able to get into the lane and is a great pick-and-roll player.
If, in the short term, Pangos is not going to be able to contribute with his scoring, it makes sense to allow him to contribute more as a distributor.
Giving Pangos more minutes at the point guard position could jump start his scoring as he focuses less on getting his own shot and more on creating for others.
