Miami Heat: Kyle Lowry Has To Absolutely Shoot His Shots
They say you miss all of the shots that you don’t take and that feels like twice the impact when you have been as lethal as Kyle Lowry has been throughout his career—but isn’t letting it go at the rate you would like to see him do so now.
Averaging only 10 attempts per game, that would be his lowest in almost 11 seasons, save for the 2012-13 season where he averaged only 9.2 per game.
Though there have been a few elongated periods of inactivity, being sidelined due to personal reasons that you certainly give him the respect to take time away to take care of, he has only taken 15 or more shots in six of his 52 games played this season.
Think about that?
No, you don’t want him to be a chucker, but you do need his production. Across his last 16 games played, he has only taken 10 or more in five of those games.
You love the way he has increased the pace for this Heat team, allowing them to get out early off the rebound for easy buckets, you love the way he galvanizes the team, you love the fact that he plays defense, and takes the charges to turn the other team over—but at some point, you need his offense.
