The LA Clippers were the best shooting team in the NBA last year.

They had the highest three-point percentage in the league at 41.1%, and had two top ten three-point shooters in Marcus Morris Sr. (second) and Luke Kennard (ninth). They had nine three-point shooters shooting over 40% last year (out of shooters who shot 19 or more threes this past season).

The team also has many players who can shoot well from mid-range, and shooting is one of the biggest takeaways that stand out from looking at this roster. Three guys in particular are the overall best shooters in this franchise.

No. 3 best shooter on the LA Clippers roster: Marcus Morris Sr.

As I previously stated, Marcus Morris Sr. had the second-best three-point stroke in the NBA for the LA Clippers last year.

That 47.3% three-point percentage is the same as his solid 47.3% field goal percentage. That’s a great field goal percentage for a 6’8″ four that plays out on the wing more often than most fours.

He also doesn’t miss at the free throw line, making 82% of his free throws this past year.

He wasn’t as good in the postseason, shooting 37.5% from three, but that’s still solid for a power forward. He’ll be better next postseason, as he wasn’t healthy for most of the Western Conference Finals. He shot over 40% in the playoff games he was healthy.

He shot 45.8% from the field in the games he wasn’t hobbled, showing that he is still an incredible shooter even at the highest level.
