Tobias Harris’s pull-up jumper is his next key area of development

Article Summary:

The only drawback for his shooting was that as he embraced a more physical, interior, bully-ball approach with his improved driving and post play, his three-point attempts dropped to only 3.4 per game – his lowest average since 3.1 in 2015-16.

This change clearly didn’t stop Harris from having a terrific season, but focusing on developing his pull-up game this offseason was a good idea.

Last season, Harris only attempted 1 pull-up triple per game, making them at a 30.5 percent rate. In 55 games with the Clippers in 2018-19, Harris made 47.9 percent of his 1.3 pull-up threes per game, which was good enough to lead the NBA among players who attempted at least 50 such shots. Harris has improved throughout his career, and adding a few more threes off the bounce certainly shouldn’t be out of the question for a player who has the skillset to do so a little more often.
