Gordon, who has made 184 three-pointers and is shooting 38.5% from that distance this season, got the best of Irving – the 2013 champion – in the tiebreaker, outscoring him 21-19. “Towards the end, you get a little tired,” said Gordon, a first-time Three-Point Contest participant. “I wasn’t really concentrating on how many I made. It’s all about just focusing on just knocking down the shot. I never count it in my head or anything. You just go out there and shoot the ball. That last rack, it was just mostly fatigue.”
Speaking to reporters at a media session to promote his appearance in the 3-point shooting contest on Saturday at the Smoothie King Center, Gordon said he was frustrated and disillusioned by his ever-changing role in New Orleans. “There was a little bit of dysfunction,” Gordon said. “My role changed a lot. If I would have had the same freedom that I had (in Houston), it would have been a different result. It’s always been a little dysfunctional, not just for me… everybody.” Asked to elaborate on the dysfunction, Gordon said, “Things weren’t on the same page all the time. Like I said, my role’s changed, too. That’s something that I wasn’t expecting when I first got to New Orleans. Things happen and you move on.”
