The Sixers need Jimmy Butler to increase his 3-point volume

Let’s see more Jimmy (3-point) Buckets Jimmy Butler has never been in love with 3-pointers. During his previous four All-Star seasons, he put up 21.8 points per game on just 3.2 3-point attempts. Attacking opponents through pick-and-rolls, storming to the basket, and getting to the free throw line at an elite rate have been Butler’s comfort zone.

And for the most part, especially over the first...
