He finished the regular season shooting just 43.8 percent from the field, the second-lowest shooting percentage of his career, and shooting only 34.0 percent from 3-point range, the lowest of his career. “Obviously, I’m disappointed in the way I shot the ball this year,” Fournier said. “It was like my worst year as far as just making shots. But somehow I feel like I’ve never been better, whether that’s defensively, being active on the floor, being a leader or just making plays. It’s just for some reason I couldn’t make freakin’ shots, and I’m going to fix that. But it’s a part of it.”
Orlando’s new coach, Steve Clifford, often referred to Fournier as his team’s best pick-and-roll defender and occasionally picked Fournier to guard lightning-fast point guards such as John Wall. In the meantime, Fournier also dished out a career-high 3.6 assists per game. “I thought he would be a good defender,” Clifford said. “He’s a much more versatile defender than I realized. He guarded point guards, and he can guard bigger guys, which he’s always done in the past, anyway. I knew he was a good competitor. I think he’s a terrific competitor. He badly wants to win. He didn’t shoot the ball as well as he has in other years, and again, that’ll be a lot of the film work this summer.”
