Comparison between Terry Rozier and Kris Dunn

In comparison, Dunn shot a paltry 28.8 percent on catch-and-shoot threes and is a career 32.3 percent from long distance. Terry Rozier is a better scorer than Dunn, but he’s going to take some shots away from Lauri Markkanen and Zach LaVine.

Rozier is a questionable decision-maker but he showed that he can be a capable PnR Ball Handler. Per, Rozier ranked in the 74th percentile as the ball handler in the pick-and-roll while Kris Dunn was in the 40th percentile.

Rozier only ran PnR 21.8 percent of the time compared to Dunn’s 52.0 percent frequency.  The allure with Rozier is that he hasn’t had an opportunity to be the starting point guard, but Rozier has struggled to be efficient despite being surrounded by a plethora of talent and high-IQ players.

If there is one thing that the NBA Finals have taught us is that having high-IQ players are very important. Can Rozier make the right read or the right pass? Yes, but will we make the right play 90 percent of the time? Nope.
