Since finding a home in Brooklyn, Joe Harris has established himself as one of the premier catch and shoot specialists in the league. A big reason the Nets were able to secure a playoff berth last season was because of Harris and his ability to consistently knock down shots. The team will need that heading into the restart.
In 2018-19, Harris had an absolutely insane 3-point percentage during the regular season, shooting 47.1%. Following that historic regular season, though, the Virginia product struggled mightily in the first-round series against the 76ers, shooting only 19% from 3.
Harris got back to his old ways this season and was a marksman from distance, but in order for the Nets to survive more than a couple of weeks in Orlando, they’ll need their sharpshooter to hit regularly from behind the arc. If Harris can keep the defense spread out, it gives players like Spencer Dinwiddie more room to operate and thus make Brooklyn even more dangerous.
Assuming the Nets are able to re-sign him next season, throwing him into an offense with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving will absolutely be scary. He’s going to have A LOT of catch-and-shoot opportunities from the three-point line.
