After shooting 1-of-9 in Game 2, Kyle Korver is due

SHARE After shooting 1-of-9 in Game 2, Kyle Korver is due

Kyle Korver never sweats a poor shooting performance — especially when the Bulls win.

Korver shot 1-of-9 from the field, including 1-of-5 on three-pointers, in the Bulls’ 86-73 victory over the Atlanta Hawks in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference series.

”I think I just rushed it a little bit,” Korver said. ”I was trying to be aggressive and really come out and missed my first few shots and just didn’t get into a rhythm. The one [field goal] was probably the hardest shot of the night.

”But we won. Bad shooting nights happen. And when they happen on nights that you win, it makes it that much easier to deal with it. Hopefully we’re saving it for a different night.”

That’s more likely than not. Korver rarely has two bad shooting nights in a row. When he takes three or more shots and hits less than 20 percent, he shoots a composite 55 percent overall (55-of-100) and 48 percent on three-pointers (23-of-48) in the following game. Korver hit 3-of-4 three-pointers in Game 1.
