“He’s a sticker. He can shoot,” said point guard Norris Cole, who made his Pelicans debut in that game, facing his ex-team. “Everyone in the league knows the scouting report: Close out on him. And even if you close out on him, he can still make it. He’s a prolific shooter. Obviously he works on it a lot.” That too has been critical to Gordon’s improvement. Though he suffered more bad luck Nov. 22 when a right shoulder injury at Utah caused him to miss 21 games, his lower body has been fine all season, providing the basis for a career shooting year. “What helps is he’s getting the reps up, because he’s healthy now,” Vinson said. “He’s more apt to be in the gym getting up extra shots, as opposed to being in the training room, trying to protect his body and prepare himself to be able to play. Now that he’s healthy, he can get out on the court early before shootaround, or get extra shots in after practice. He’s able to say, ‘OK, I feel good, I can get those extra shots up.’ His health has been huge.” NBA.com
