Well exageration aside, Bargnani averages about 17 shots a game... and team I believe takes a lot more than 34 shots total Anyways... while Bargnani is struggling you do need to look for other ways to score and as a team they've struggled with that. At least when Kleiza and Barbosa were healthy there were legitimate options there. Barbosa's value to this team can't be more clear now in the midst of this losing streak. He was instant offense even if he wasn't the most efficient scorer.

Bargnani will never get out of the slump though if he doens't keep shooting. I think from a coaching standpoint the only thing Triano's not doing well is getting Andrea to do more inside work. He's not setting him up with good post position, favouring instead giving him the ball out by the arc. Andrea always does better with an early game dunk or a couple easy baskets from within a few feet. Lately he's starting from outside and that is not a recipe for success.
