Keldon Johnson is a 3-point threat

Keldon Johnson has been a longtime fan favorite for many fans due to his hard-nosed, enthusiastic style of challenging players at the rim despite his 6-foot-4 frame.

The 2019 first-round pick has added another wrinkle into his game this season by nearly doubling his three-point attempts from 2.6 per game last season to around five per game this season.

Shooting 40% from 3 with a 38% 3-point rate makes Johnson’s ability to drive to the rim and muscle home points at the basket so much more dangerous now that defenders have to guard on him the perimeter as well, allowing Johnson to muscle his way past defenders to the basket.

There is a lot to be excited about with Johnson moving forward.
