“There are games where I have it going, and then at the end of the game, I'm like, damn, I shot just 12-for-16? Why don't I get up at least six or seven more? I definitely notice it,” James said.
“You have to have an unbelievable mindset to get up 30 shots. I always think about it, though. If I get up high-20s, 30 shots a game, what could I do today, with the way I'm playing?”
SHOOTING STRUGGLES CONTINUE
After going 5-for-21 from 3-point range Tuesday at Memphis, the Thunder is now shooting 32.1 percent from that distance over the past 10 games.
It's a percentage that would rank the Thunder second-to-last in the league, ahead of only Detroit at 31.2 percent.
“We had a lot of good open looks,” said Thunder coach Scott Brooks. “We are going to have to step up and make some shots. I believe in all of our guys taking them. They are not shots that are forced. They are not shots that are out of their rhythm. We just have to continue to believe in them and keep passing to each other.”
