Is the Spurs 3-point Shooting Falling Short?

I've noticed over the past couple of games that the Spurs can't seem to land the three-pointer like they used to. True Manu recovered his three point prowess against the Pacers, but with Manu this year, we don't know how long it'll be before he goes back to inconsistency.

                                        Now we don't. Is he huffing a sock?

 

As a team overall, our three point percentage has dropped from .450 to .390. True this is still second place, but it's no longer as dominating as it once was. In games past, here's our numbers:

 

 

Magic vs. Spurs- 23.1% hitting a mere 3-13

Lakers vs. Spurs- an amazing 50% with 10 of 20

76ers vs. Spurs- 33.3% with 7 of 21

Bulls vs. Spurs- 30.4% with 7 of 23

Bobcats vs. Spurs- very low 23.8% with 5 of 21

Pacers vs. Spurs- 40% hitting 6 of 15

 

Who knows? Maybe I'm paranoid, but I think that we may be attempting too many threes too soon and not hitting enough of them. It seems that Finley, Bonner, and Mason are starting to miss more often. Like I said, maybe I'm paranoid/stupid. But I just felt like sharing my two-bits.

 

I apologize for the lack of pictures (I know you people have short-attention spans and that helps you stay focused) so here's picture palooza.

And so ends my picture palooza. Until next time, this has been KA1Z3R and "stay classy San Diego"
