BREAKDOWN – Unique company for Gordon Hayward

The two most efficient ways to use a possession are to go to the free throw line or to shot a three pointer. This year Gordon Hayward used 19.9% of his possessions to shot a three and 12.8 % of his possession to shot a free throw.

This is a unique combination, rarely can a player both shot the three with regularity and the same time go to the line a lot. The league average is 17.4% from three and 9.7% of possessions from the line.

To put in perspective what Hayward did this year here are the players that have accomplished the same in the last three seasons.

Here are the players who shot at least 19.5% of possession from 3 and 12.5% of their possessions from the free throw line.
