Overall, 74.2% of Kyle Korver's shots are 3-point field goals. He shoots six threes a game, making them 50% of the time, but how does the proximity of Korver's defender effect his 3P%? When Korver is guarded tightly his 3P% drops to 43.9. Compare that to when he's left open or wide open, 51.7% and 53.5% respectively. When Korver has a defender 0-2 feet away he rarely shoots, it only accounts for 2.1% of his shots. Fun fact: Korver is assisted on 96% of his 3-point field goals.
