But the Grizzlies lack of 3-point shooting has been an Achilles heel. This year, they remain near the bottom of the league in almost all outside shooting metrics.
Miller, though, provides the Grizzlies a sharpshooting weapon they’ve lacked against OKC in the past.
This season, he was the third-most accurate outside shooter in the NBA, making 107 threes at a 46 percent clip.
“It gives them the ability to stretch the floor,” Scott Brooks said. “They have a center that’s a great passer and a point guard that’s a great passer, so any time you have shooting on the floor, it helps…Mike Miller is one of the best shooters in the league.”
And he’s got another chance to burn the Thunder, adding another interesting subplot to this intriguing first-round series.
