Detroit Pistons: Wayne Ellington has lost the magic from 3-point range

If Wayne Ellington were a stock, investors would be crawling over each other trying to sell at this point.

After a red-hot start in which he briefly led the NBA in 3-point percentage, Ellington has fallen off the map.

He did have 15 points on 4-of-6 from behind the arc against the Knicks, so hopefully this trend is changing, but prior to that Ellington couldn’t hit anything.

In his previous 11 games, Ellington was 11-of-57 from the 3-point line for a whopping 19 percent. Yikes.

The Detroit Pistons were never going to get much for Ellington in a trade but now it might not even be possible to get rid of him. Let’s hope Ellington can find the touch again before the trade deadline.

Detroit Pistons: Josh Jackson’s 3-point shooting

Josh Jackson has not payed terribly overall for the Detroit Pistons, as he always brings energy on the defensive end and his offensive game does not rely completely on 3-point shooting.

Nor should it because Jackson is pretty terrible at shooting them. Over the last ten games, Jackson is shooting 19.4 percent from 3-point range but that hasn’t stopped him from jacking up 36 of them, far too many for a guy who has never really been good from there.

This is something Jackson will need to improve over time, as teams are just going to continue to sag off him as long as under 30 percent, which he currently is.

Jackson has been a nice find overall but this high-volume, low-percentage 3-point shooting needs to stop.

Nothing has changed for the Detroit Pistons, who are still trying to tank their way to a franchise-altering talent and doing a heck of a job at this point, with only nine wins overall.
