Eddie House and 3 Point Attempts

 

All Celtics fans know Eddie House to be one thing and one thing only: a shooter. House has been in somewhat of a slump shooting the ball this year with his 3 point shooting percentage actually coming in higher than his FG percentage overall from the floor (39.7 to 39.4)

Yet last night after looking through the box score from the C’s win over the Wizards, there was one glaring statistic that caught my eye.

 
BENCH MIN FGM-A 3PM-A FTM-A OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
Rasheed Wallace, C 19 0-2 0-1 4-4 1 4 5 0 0 1 0 2 +9 4
Eddie House, PG 17 2-5 0-0 0-0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 1 +3 4

Now I know what you are thinking here and no it’s not the fact that Rasheed Wallace took only 2 shots from the field and perhaps even more impressively just one three point attempt. As Zach Lowe noted in his recap, this may never happen again.

However there is one statistic in those stat lines I would argue is even rarer than Wallace’s non-shooting ways. The number you ask? Eddie House taking 0 3′s last night.

Now as I said earlier, Eddie has shot well from downtown but has been fairly inconsistent as a whole shooting the ball this year. However, for a guy who usually only plays 15-20 minutes a game, I couldn’t remember the last time he hadn’t got up a 3 ball in a Celtics game. So I did a little research on the matter, determined to find out when exactly Eddie did not put up a 3 point attempt in a game before last night. So I looked and looked…..and looked and finally found an answer.  It had been awhile……a very long while.

The last time Eddie did not take a 3 pointer in a game was during the 2007-08 season, nearly 2 years ago during a one point loss in Cleveland on February 5th. Ironically, the only other time Eddie has not taken a 3 in a Celtic uniform before last night, was the game prior to the Cleveland matchup at home against Dallas on January 31st.

So in 181 games in a Celtic uniform, Eddie House has managed to take a 3 pointer in all but 3 of those contests while averaging just 17 minutes a game all the while. Not too shabby.

Give the guy credit, the Celtics pay him to do one thing and while he may not always be doing it well, he certainly is trying out there. Here’s hoping he finds a more consistent stroke the rest of the way here.
