Russell Westbrook is shooting 3-pointers more than ever. Per game, per minute or as a percentage of all his shots – Westbrook is taking 3s at a career-high clip by a fairly wide margin. But he’s barely attempting more jumpers than usual. Westbrook is taking 47 percent of his shots from at least 15 feet, up slightly 42 percent each of the last two seasons. The biggest difference comes in the distribution of those long jumpers. On shots from at least 15 feet, 56 percent of Westbrook’s attempts are 3-pointers. That was 47 percent last year, 36 percent the year before and 23 percent the year prior.
