The Okay: OG Anunoby living up to new contract
Earlier this year I suspected that OG Anunoby would be primed to take a leap this year and I even picked him for most improved in a recent podcast I did. So far, he’s had some good games and some bad ones which is why he falls in the okay section.
He continues to look about the same as last year defensively and maybe just a little better on offense, keeping in mind all of this is in a very small sample. He went 0-5 on threes in his first game against the Pelicans and then 1-10 against the Knicks while mixing in a 20 point performance against the sixers that included 4 threes and five steals. Anunoby’s 41.7 FG percent is certainly being weighed down by that 1-10 performance, so all and all OG has been okay. I wouldn’t consider him one of the bad parts of the Raptors season so far.
Toronto Raptors’ three-point attempts
The Raptors are getting up A TON of three-pointers, in fact, 51.7 percent (!!!) Of their shots are from beyond the arc. On the surface, it looks good but in reality, that means 48.3 percent of their shots are two-pointers, which means they aren’t getting to the rim enough.
There is nothing wrong with getting up a lot of three pointers, as long as they are good looks, but if you take into account the shot mix, it’s why I have it here in the Ok section.
