Darius Miller is caught in the middle of a three-point shooting slump and he needs to find his way out of it soon. Miller has only made three of his 17 three-point field goal attempts in the last four games. If you took away his 4-for-5 performance against Portland, Darius would be just 4-for-28 on the season from beyond the arc. Those are VERY uncharacteristic numbers from the guy who shot 44% last season.
Miller is well aware of the funk he’s currently in and he believes it’s just an issue of patience. “I think I’m kind of just rushing it a little bit, instead of taking my time and shooting it,” he told the media on Monday. “I think I’m kind of rushing my shot and hurrying up and shooting it. I think I just need to take my time in getting it off.”
He has had a lot of open looks this year and I’ll admit to holding up my goggles before he releases the ball on a lot of those. Normally, a wide open three-pointer from Darius is going in. Kentucky fans are anxiously waiting for him to get back in that groove.
I don’t think we have any reason to worry about this long-term. Shooting slumps happen. He’ll be a’ight.
On second thought, why shoot threes when you can do this?
