Sefolosha has found his niche by burying the corner-3, where he is shooting 46.6 percent (55 for 118) this season. He also is a strong finisher at the basket, shooting 70.5 percent in the restricted area, which is superb for a guard (teammate Russell Westbrook is at 57.8 percent).
In addition, Sefolosha has stepped up in several key moments, which have included an offensive rebound and drive with 36.6 seconds left in a victory at Brooklyn last December, and helping clinch a victory at Dallas two weeks ago on a fadeaway, 13-foot jumper with 12.5 seconds left in the game.
“Now he's a knock-down shooter,” Durant said of Sefolosha. “If you play NBA2K, they have a ‘3-pointer' by his name now. He's worked so hard on it. He's doing everything. He's passing well, he's driving, he made a huge shot in that Dallas game. We trust him.”
