it's almost exclusively due to the offense slumping
that's partly due to bargnani's collapsing (he's probably exhausted, although it's not very clear to me why, he's not playing heavy minutes ..), but mostly because we're missing our only two point shooters off the bench (kleiza and barbosa). When Jose is out, and with Bargnani
struggling, teams just clog the middle and we seem to be happy shooting long jumpers throughout the game. Even Amir is shooting more jumpers lately than he did the whole of last season.
