The Spurs Danny Green’s Shooting Slump Is Hard To Watch

By Michael Rehome

There is no question that the Spurs Danny Green is off to a rocky start this season. A career 41-percent 3-point shooter, this seasons start, not so good.

Over his last five games, Green is 7-of-29 from the field–including 3-of-19 from the 3-point line. Green and the rest of the San Antonio Spurs came out sluggish against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday.

He is struggling, and that is saying it nicely. He was 3-of-10 from the floor against the the Raptors. He finished with eight points.

A shooter like Green, there is only one way to get out of a slump–continue shooting. Well in this case, it is starting to become frustrating. When Green is on, he is on. I always look back when he was on top of the world hitting three after three in the playoffs.

Those were some good times.

Now, Green cannot seem to find the bottom of the basket, even close range. We can’t be to hard on this guy right? He is going to be just fine, well we can just hope.

This season, Green is averaging seven points a game. A tremendous dip from the 11.7 he averaged just a season ago. Beyond the 3-point line, he is a career 41.2-percent shooter.

Is it time to hit the panic button on Green? We would like to hear what you, the fans, have to say about the struggles of Green.
