Help!!!!!

My Washington Generals are being used as whip boys...

Despite leading in flg % with .600 and .500 at 3pts% (by the way adding the amount of 3pt convert vs attempted would be a usefull stats to be added to the team stats...)

Obviously, it's quite to early, since i am only 4 games old to panic...

When looking at my global team stats, I am pretty much in the high average except for drb... I can live with that.

My main concern is I have a lineup that can be well suited to shot for 3pts with Stockton, Mullin, Petrovic and now Nick Anderson, but in 4 games they only attempted 12 3 pointers all together... Other team I am playing againts are attempting 12 3pointers per games.... My team should not be attempting much lower number of 3pts attempt vs my opposition. My opposition is litteraly tripling or quadrupling my amount of 3pts attempt...

How can I turn this trend around, and have my team shoot more often for 3 ????

my shot share distribution is pretty fair also...

Firstly, the Washington Generals haven't won since 1971.

Secondly, you're only averaging 3 defensive stops (D) per game, are your weakest defenders matched up against opposing 3pt shooters? Looks like they might be, at the SG and SF positions. That could factor into the increased 3pt shots against.

well before adding Nick Anderson you didn't have a team that shot very many 3 pointers. Stockton 2.9 per game, Mullin 3.0, Mourning and Duncan 0.4 and 0.1. Their compiled numbers are a little low at this point but not egregiously low if you factor in that the game is only to 80. Plus you've lost two games by 2 so I wouldn't panic. But if you want more threes get guys that shoot more threes and give them a higher shot share.

Many Thanks for the input and sharing your thoughts.

I expected the Generals to get some sour beatings!

I already had Stockton and Petrovic to shoot more often.

My total of 3pt attemps with Stockton,Petrovic and Mullin was at about 9.5. It is pretty close to any other lineups, or let even say a bit lower by 25% maybe... but my team ends up shooting 300% or 400% less 3pts attempts than my opposition in every game... This is mostly what kills me in every single game...

I must be doing something wrong in my settings or having a wrong analytic on some relevant stats that I can't get my finger on.

Obviously, only 4 games in is pretty early to be able to handle so easily...

I just replace Petrovic with Anderson, for a +3 3pt attempts per game just to see if it will increase significantly my 3pt attempts....

It just did, It brought my number of 3pt attempts to 12... same total in 1 game vs the total of all my previous 4 games all together...

but Generals losing streak continues...

Anyhow Time will tell...
