As they should be a potent defensive-group, the Miami Heat are due for some offensive improvement. One of the NBA’s lowest scoring teams will enter the 2021-22 season with a revamped identity, as their shooting efficiencies have waned since the end of last year.
But regardless of their recent struggles, floor-spacing remains a huge part of Miami’s offense and after a successful free agency period in August, Miami’s shooting effectiveness should increase — most especially from one single area: the short-corner three-pointer.
A team of high volume shooters, the Heat registered 662 corner three-point attempts (fifth-most in the NBA), but converted on just 36 percent of them (fifth-worst). While they did sacrifice a few of their best options in free agency, here’s an outlook of Miami’s best corner shooters from the previous season.
Best Miami Heat Corner Shooters In 2020-21
- Goran Dragic: 54.8 percent
- Tyler Herro: 46.3 percent
- Max Strus: 45.6 percent
- Duncan Robinson: 36.8 percent
Before completing a sign-and-trade deal to acquire Kyle Lowry, Dragic was the Heat’s third-best shooter behind Kendrick Nunn and elite marksman, Duncan Robinson.
