Royce O’Neal Rumors
Ohm Youngmisuk: Ty Lue thought Joe Ingles and Royce O’Neale tried to wear down Paul George and Kawhi Leonard coming off of a short turnaround from Game 7 and that the Clippers didn’t have a lot of pop in second half. He says Clippers have to own their own space and play physical vs Utah defense.
O’Neale joins Muscala as the only other eligible player with over 60% of their shots taken with a defender six or more feet away. He’s shooting 41.6% from three when wide-open for the season, but, most interestingly, he shows an innate ability to predict the future. O’Neale consistently got more distant over the months of the season, peaking at 80% of his March field goal attempts happening with a six-foot minimum gap.
