This is not quite as infrequent an occurrence as Halley’s Comet, but it’s about as rare as me voluntarily going clothes shopping.
According to his game logs on Basketball Reference, the last instance of Sheed attempting three or fewer triples combined over a three-game span happened during the last three games of the…2005 season.
So, you know, cherish the discipline and all. Uncontested threes are generally better shots than contested twos, but not when you’re shooting 28 percent from deep and 47 percent or better from every other spot on the floor (per Hoopdata).
Sheed actually displayed that sort of discipline several times during the ’05 season and consistently up until 2004. His evolution as a player in terms of shot selection is startling and well-known.
For comparison’s sake, Ray Allen hasn’t had a three-game stretch in which he’s attempted three or fewer from deep since his rookie season, according to his game logs.
