There are moments when a player is in such a groove, a shot that would seem impossible to anyone else is as easy as breathing to them. Kyle Korver had been in that sort of groove for basically the entire first half of the season. He’d hit three after three, from any distance and any situation – coming off screens, spotting up, pulling up in transition, you name it.
After the All-Star break, though, Korver went into a slump. He was still deadly from beyond the arc, but not as automatic as he had been before.Maybe it was fatigue, maybe it was a simple shooter’s slump, but something just wasn’t right. The thing about shooters, though, is that they can break out of a slump with one great performance. Well, after Korver’s stellar display tonight, I think it’s safe to say he’s well on his way to busting out of his slump.
Korver finished with 11 points, including 3-of-9 from deep as the Atlanta Hawks beat the Milwaukee Bucks 101-88.
