When all is going well, Mirza Teletovic is a lights out shooter and he creates a lot of floor spacing for the Nets. Unfortunately for Teletovic, he has struggled for the majority of the beginning of this season. Teletovic is shooting 39 percent from the field and 32 percent from three-point range and those are numbers that the Nets need to go up. Teletovic has rebounded the ball better and improved defensively, but the percentages need to go up.

When Teletovic’s shot is going down, it creates a matchup problem for the opposing defense and it allows for Teletovic to occasionally put the ball on the floor and attack the basket. Teletovic is too good of a shooter for these struggles to continue, so I expect a much better end to the year from Teletovic.
