Is reserve forward Sam Hauser the Boston Celtics' best shooter?




 

According to Bleacher Report's Mo Dakhil, Boston Celtics reserve forward Sam Hauser " might be the best pure shooter" on the team. "He never shot lower than 40% for a season in college and was a career 43.9 % 3-point shooter."

The Virginia alumnus has become a key cog in Boston's rotation, serving as a lethal option for the Celtics' star wings Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to pass to as they attack the cup. "In the 10 games he spent in the G League last season, he shot 43.3% from 3 on 9 attempts per contest," observed Dakhil. "In limited time in the NBA last season, the 24-year-old shot 43.2% from deep.

"This season he's connecting on 47.9% of his 3s. He is doing that on 4.6 attempts per night while getting 16.7 minutes," he adds.

"If Hauser is in the game, he is going to get shots up-and they are probably going in."
