Joe Ingles is shooting the lights out

Although Joe Ingles’ plus/minus and net rating numbers are nothing short of cringe-worthy, he has absolutely been on point shooting the ball. In fact, perhaps Ingles could help out his team and raise his individual impact stats if he would play a little bit more selfishly and shoot the ball more often.

Ingles is currently converting three-point shots at an incredible 47.8 percent on five attempts per game. He’s also a respectable 45 percent from the field, but more than anything he has lit the nets on fire from deep. For a team that lacks offensive firepower and is currently just 13th in the league in three-point percentage at 36.5 percent, there’s no doubting that they could benefit from Ingles pulling the trigger a bit more.

True, it’s not his nature to chuck up shot after shot while his teammates stand around and watch and Jinglin’ Joe is known more as a do-it-all kind of player rather than a scorer extraordinaire, but he has the ability to knock down the three at an incredible clip so he needs to continue to do so.

Although his overall impact and three-point attempts could use a boost, there’s no denying that his hot shooting is something Jazz fans should be very grateful for. If Joe can keep the hot hand throughout the season and the team can make tweaks to get him even more open looks, it could be revolutionary for the Utah Jazz.
