Meyers needs a mandate to shoot enough swish3 attempts to score at least 9 points per half. Although some of you are convinced that he has instructions to take multiple attempts, the evidence is otherwise as the Clippers game Nov 25 demonstrated. We know that Meyers is a very coach compliant player who works hard to follow his instructions, and yet we see that he took only 4 swish3 attempts (and only 5 FG attempts) in 24 min. He was not looking to shoot when he got the ball, and did not rotate to his high percentage sweet spots to receive assist passes to make these scores. In my view, he does not have the assignment from the coaches to make the moves or to look for the shots to make the 10-20 points in each half that his excellent 53/53/94 shooting (currently) should be bringing. Meyers is providing major assets with his excellent screens, assists, rebounds, floor spacing, boxing out, and challenging opponents coming into the paint. That seems to be the essence of his assignment. But I do not see evidence that he is mandated to look for the high scoring action that he has proved to offer. If he were coached that his expected contribution is to include 9-15 points per half via swish3 scoring, I think that he would be looking to accomplish that goal. I do not believe that he would be failing to shoot if instructed. What does not add up for me is the comment that he is not looking to shoot because of lack of confidence or that he is waiting for someone yell at him to shoot. I think the opposite is true, in other words, that his decision to shoot the swish3 may be interfered with, or at least delayed, by shouting at him to shoot. In the Clippers game, he did not give evidence of having an assignment of swish3 shooting. In previous games, we have seen that he sometimes has used his threat of swish3 scoring to open up shots for others, both driving and arc shots, and to move defenders away from teammates. As BNM has masterfully stated, Meyers has used his shot decision play book to enhance the Blazer offense by not always shooting. It makes sense that this is part of the present offensive strategy. Meyers shoots a slow deliberate swish3 that is highly accurate, and he chooses when to shoot with movements that are a wide open book. Although he is criticized as being easily guarded, that is not the case as is shown by his present percentages and the playoff record (76.9%) that he holds. What is needed is for him and an assist pass to arrive precisely timed at a sweet spot for the swish3 attempt. This is where the missing coaching will provide the solution. However, to realize the benefit of having an elite swish3 percentage shooter, the Blazers need to include in the mix some plays in which Meyers is moved through not only screens and assists, but also timed arrival at sweet spots with swish3 scoring as the aim. I would then expect to see Meyers arrive at the corners, where he is quite effective, among other swish3 sweet spots, multiple times during offensive sets. But I have not seen Meyers moving to a corner spot, and have not seen Blazer teammates looking for him to be ready to shoot there, for several games. Because the Blazers have a swish3 scoring talent that now leads the Blazers, is a demonstrated playoff swish3 percentage shooter, and now among the top few swish3 percentage shooters in the NBA, it seems imperative to urge the coaches to instruct this compliant player to shoot enough swish3s to score at least 9 points per half, and see what happens. I question whether this has been done. If Meyers is in a hot streak zone, 2 of 4 is expected, 3 or 4 is possible, and even 10 of 13 swish3 scoring may again result!
