How do we score when we are having an off shooting night?


Many players ask what they should do when they are having an off-shooting night (or week, or season), First thing, practice and practice some more. If you put in the work and you know you can make these shots, then just keep shooting. Great shooters have a short memory, no matter how many they have missed, they KNOW the next one is going in. Be confident and take heart - this is the golden rule, and it will work.

Excellent advice. I as a shooter couldn't agree more. I could be 0-9 on the night, and still take the next shot knowing statistically speaking it WILL go in. Having that mental state will show great long term effects.

I will do this advice. I personally not a good shooter but I have notice everytime I am confident with my shot it is a sure score. I usually play as a center but sometimes I want to score in a mid court and I believe this will help.
