John Converse Townsend (@JohnCTownsend), the co-editor of TrueHoop Wizards blog Truth About It, asked me to chip in for a preview of tonight’s Hawks-Wizards match-up at Philips Arena. “Ask me the questions, Bridgekeeper, I am not afraid,” declared I. Townsend asked for my thoughts on last night’s win in New Orleans, and I primarily attributed it to Kyle Korver’s breakout game:
Korver is off to a slow start from 3-point range after a summer lost to rehab from two separate surgeries. Korver entered the Pelicans game having shot just 5-for-20 (25%) on 3-point attempts for the season. He has somewhat made up for it by adding a dribble-drive and midrange pull-up to his game, frequently using the glass. In New Orleans, Korver may have turned the corner, tying Paul Millsap for the team lead with 22 points on eight shots including 4-for-4 from distance and a game-high plus-16.
