    That's the only advise I can give. 80%+ of his shots are good looks within the flow of our offense. He has the stroke and if averages play out maybe he could be due for a hot streak down the stretch.

    Yes, sometimes he does take some out of the flow and/or early in the possessions (maybe in his eagerness to break the slump) but I agree with you that he has to keep shooting to get out of the slump.

    I can't figure it out. His form always looks good, he doesn't (usually) take bad shots. Just needs to bury one early and get his mojo back.

    DoDo's shots were doodoo tonight. He had a good assist to to Patrick down the stretch. Billy probably told him to work inside the rest of the game. Cardiac kids, wooooh.

    He needs to join Frazier before the game in shooting 250 3's. He has got to start shooting better.

    He has now failed to hit a three in the last six straight games, missing his last 18 attempts. Ugly.

    I gotta be honest. . . . I think his shots have generally looked awful. Rather than keep shooting, Id rather see him impact the game and his confidence in ways better than chucking up boulders.
    He is versatile enough that his game can still be effective. And perhaps that will help hm get a shooting rhythm back.

    Agree. If Wilt Chamberlain was open from 19 ft., he wasn't going to shoot. DFS has gotten good looks, but has missed 18 in a row. Correct me if I'm wrong, but none of them have been "hard luck" shots that rattled in and out. He simply doesn't square up and shoot the ball.

    I disagree. He is the only frontcourt player we have who can stretch the defense. Without him shooting, the lane is entirely clogged, making it hard for Wilbekin, Hill, and Prather to get higher percentage buckets in the paint and for Young to avoid doubles.

    And Wilt probably wasn't a 35% three point shooter before missing 18 in a row.

    The lack of punctuation in the thread title turns it into a rather horrifying demand.

    Though on the other side, if I'm an opposing coach, I might just keep clogging the lane and let him shoot all day at this point.

    I am not sure how much longer he strecthes it, at 0-18.
    I am not saying he passes on open shots, but rather that he perhaps gathers some confidence in other areas. Even his rebounds have fallen off. I don't want his shooting woes to impact all aspects. confidence can be a tricky thing. . . .and perhaps he regains it somehwere other than beyond the arc.

    If I'm scouting the gators, I tell my D to let Doe Doe shoot. I want him to take those long shots almost daring him to. When we were making a run, it seemed to me he would go for another 3 and brick it. Then they would go down and score.
    I would not mind him shooting more when we have a lead but right now, he can help the team with great D, rebounds and screens. IMO his bricks aren't helping.

    Yeah..... I dont think opponents could, should or would leave him open. He generally has a nice shooting stroke. But I think teams may be a bt less aggressive on the close outs.
    And hopefully soon . . . he will make them pay.
    We can not afford to have him passing on open shots - - - our offense is predicated on it.
    But I think he needs to focus more othe other ways he impacts a game. . . and not let the shooting woes start seeping into other areas. Maybe I am seeing something that doesnt exist. . . but DFS has looked a bit less active to me in recent games. And that is my concern.

    I guess what I am saying is. . . I do not like the theory of "shooting your way out of a slump". At last not for some players. I far prefer a player regain confidence and rhythm by being effective in other areas.
