TORONTO, ON – APRIL 25: C.J. Miles /

6. Where is C.J. Miles?

Over the last four games C.J. Miles has shot 4 of 18 from deep, or an atrocious 22 percent from range. That’s bad, really bad.  The Raptors won the series, great, Miles has been and will continue to be a necessary contributor to the Raptors for them to make a deep run in the playoffs.

Miles, much like J.R. Smith, has never seen a jumpshot he doesn’t like, which leads to questionable shot decisions, but he’s got to sink these.

Every good team has a sniper, elite teams have multiple. The Raptors have Lowry and VanFleet, but they’ve got other responsibilities too.

C.J.’s a shooter and shooters shoot, but shooters are supposed to drain shots like the one above.
