Dunleavy's Shooting Ability Big Boost for Bulls

Tony Snell and Doug McDermott have acquitted themselves nicely from beyond the arc this season, but neither player can match Dunleavy's catch-and-shoot prowess.

During the 2014-15 season, Dunleavy nailed 39.6 percent of his catch-and-shoot threes and 46.9 percent of his triples via pull-up attempts, according to NBA.com's player tracking data. Chicago's offense has also long benefited from Dunleavy's ability to space the floor and open up driving lanes for Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler.
