Green’s accuracy from deep was just a little worse than his percentage inside the arc. Danny fired 7.4 shots per game with 4.7 coming from downtown.Green nailed nearly two 3s a contest and shot 41.5 percent from 3, good enough for 13th in the NBA.
In fact, Danny on average scored 5.7 PPG from 3s (Patty averaged half his points from downtown) and just 3.4 points per game inside the arc and from the free throw line. A 79 percent free-throw shooter, Green was very much content in firing 3-balls from the top of the key, the elbows and corners.
An excellent defender as well, Danny’s still trying to expand his all-around game. Green led all NBA guards last year with 0.9 blocks per game and was 37th overall.
Teammate Tim Duncan was fifth with 1.88 BPG.
At 0.61 BPG, Michael Carter-Williams was second in terms of guards and 70th overall. Offensively, Danny’s biggest threat is from deep, which works perfectly in San Antonio’s system.
