We have all seen that New Orleans Pelicans point guard Lonzo Ball has a new shooting form. It’s more conventional than in years past, and no doubt the Pelicans are hoping that it means a more consistent 3-point shot from Ball.
The team got to put that to the test this week when Ball took on legendary NBA sharpshooter and teammate JJ Redick. In a shooting contest, Ball and Redick went head-to-head with each other and the result was…

That’s sort of a hard outcome given how good things looked for Ball. But he shouldn’t have too much pain in losing to Redick, who is an all-time great.
New Orleans should be an interesting team as a playoff hopeful contender, and they have a bunch of likable guys on their roster. If Ball can become a better 3-point shooter — he shot just 32 percent last season — it could mean a big difference for how teams defend the Pelicans this year.
