Darius Miller leads the NBA in three-point FG percentage

The New Orleans Pelicans are currently the eight seed in the West, and a former Wildcat has been a big reason for that success.

It’s just not one of the dynamic frontcourt players you’d expect.

When no one else on the team has been consistent from beyond the arc, former Cat Darius Miller has been on fire.

In fact, Miller is currently the top three-point shooter in the NBA with a minimum of 75 attempts.

Of all three-point shooters with no minimum criteria, Miller is ranked just behind Boston’s Jayson Tatum on the list.

Here are just a few highlights and fan tweets talking about how incredible Miller has been for the Pelicans:

Of all guys to come out of Kentucky, I have to admit Miller was not one of the guys I expected to thrive in the NBA.

Not only has he carved out a role for himself, he’s been a crucial part of the team’s success.

Keep putting in work, Darius!

    Nice try but Darius Miller will never be an NBA starter…

      Believe it or not, it’s possible to thrive in the NBA without being a starter. Ever heard of Lou Williams or Jamal Crawford?
