Nets sniper and small forward Joe Harris is on pace to become first player in NBA to hit 50% on at least five three-point attempts per game.
There is no team in the league which is more star-studded than the Brooklyn Nets. When talking about the Brooklyn Nets, people often refer to the deadly trio of Durant, Harden and Kyrie. They often tend to forget that they have some great role players too. The team has a great depth, that on any given night, anybody could be a spark of the bench and help win games.
Joe Harris, an important role player for the Nets, has been developing his game each and every year in the league. With every season, he seems to be improving some of the other attributes of his game. This season, Harris has been on track to achieve something which has never ever been done in NBA history.
The 6-foot-6 swingman has been shooting an insane 50.9% on 6.7 attempts per game from beyond the arc. With this incredible feat, the pure shooter is on course to become the first-ever player in NBA history to be shooting 50% of his shots from behind the three-point line on at least 5 attempts per game.
Joe Harris is having one of the best shooting seasons in the NBA
The fact that the ‘big three’ have been averaging around 80 points per game, and Harris has been having a career-best in his three-point shooting, proves how deadly the offensive arsenal of the Nets is.
On Thursday night, Brooklyn grabbed their eighth consecutive win against Nikola Vucevic and the Magic. Harris had yet another efficient shooting performance in the 129-92 win, scoring 14 points on 66.7% shooting from three-point land.
Harris has not just been the most efficient shooter on his team, but throughout the league. He currently leads the league in Effective Field Goal Percentage with 68.5%. He is also second in the league in True Shooting Percentage with 68.8% despite shooting just 69% on his 29 free throw attempts so far.

It has become visible that the chemistry of all the players on the team has been improved compared to the last few weeks. The Nets look stronger and more determined for that championship. If they continue to dominate the way they have been doing, there will be no one stopping them on their road to the championship.
