Bulls Get Moore's Three-Point Shooting Back at Critical Time

Moore has been a much-needed three-point weapon for the Bulls, coming off the bench to shoot nearly 42 percent from behind the arc before his injury.

While he's been a reliable perimeter shooter, Moore's minutes have been inconsistent in his second season with Chicago. After failing to see the court against the Milwaukee Bucks on Jan. 12, Moore scored a season-high 14 points Jan. 14 against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Six days later, despite losing to the Golden State Warriors by 31, Moore scored 13 points in 16 minutes.

He has taken the role of Chicago's backup shooting guard with Kirk Hinrich sitting out after suffering a quad injury. The Bulls need Moore to remain in the lineup, as he has shown in the past he can help lead the team to wins off the bench.
