  • Subtitles section
  • Just a few years after going undrafted, Duncan Robinson hasn't just proven NBA scouts wrong, he's also emerged as one of the finest three-point shooters in the world.
  • In his signature shot, his catch-and-shoot three is among the most dangerous weapons in the NBA.
  • Double team, out Robinson, Robinson for three, bang!
  • Duncan Robinson from downtown!
  • Last season, the Miami Heat came out of nowhere to go all the way to the NBA Finals.
  • Duncan Robinson was one big reason why.
  • His incredible breakout performance from beyond the arc provided Miami with the exact kind of shooting that is so important in the league right now.
  • During the 2019-20 NBA season, Robinson logged what might go down as one of the greatest catch-and-shoot seasons ever.
  • In case you think that's an exaggeration, these are the five most accurate catch-and-shoot seasons in three-point shooting history.
  • Not only is that splashy company, Robinson is on top of that list.
  • He truly lit it up from everywhere.
  • He was elite from pretty much the entire arc.
  • Pretty good for an undrafted player who started his college career at Division III Williams College, and just two years ago was trying to find his way in the G League.
  • It is Duncan Robinson who will fire for three and hits the top three-point shooter in the NBA G League.
  • I mean, the G League is an incredible opportunity.
  • You know, it's maybe not the glitz and glamor of the NBA, but it's an opportunity to prove yourself and showcase your abilities.
  • It didn't take long for Heat coach Eric Spolstra to realize that Robinson was one of the most potent threats on his roster, and it's no secret why.
  • The dude can flat-out shoot.
  • That's the guy that you want shooting at, Duncan Robinson.
  • Now you got a shooter cooking a little bit.
  • After starting only one game in 2018-19, appearing in just 15 and shooting just 35 threes, Robinson started 68 games last season and launched a ridiculous 606 triples.
  • And while Robinson's ability to knock down jumpers gets a lot of headlines, his ability to get those shots in the first place deserves just as much attention.
  • Simply put, the guy is a nightmare off the ball.
  • He's constantly moving, cutting through defenses, and looking for shooting space.
  • Spolstra has designed countless screening actions that are engineered to create clean looks for his young sharpshooter, and defenders hoping to stop Robinson not only have to chase him around screens,
  • They also must stay right on his tail because Duncan has one of the fastest and one of the highest releases in the league.
  • His release is just incredible how quickly he gets it off.
  • One of the most important stats that explains his incredible success is this, he's six feet seven inches tall.
  • His shot is hard to block in part because he's simply taller than Klay Thompson and JJ Redick.
  • Pair that with his tireless off-ball movement and Robinson becomes one of the toughest and most important defensive assignments in the league.
  • When defenders get caught on a screen or just turn their heads to look elsewhere, it's already too late.
  • Robinson's hyper-fast release means he's open when other shooters are not.
  • It only takes fractions of a second for him to turn from a receiver into one of the most dangerous perimeter shooters in the NBA.
  • Even when you think you have prevented Robinson three, his off-ball savvy proves you wrong.
  • Here, Victor Oladipo does a great job stifling Robinson's three-point try, but the play isn't over.
  • Duncan adjusts and improvises a give-and-go relocation to get a second bite of the apple, and Oladipo can't get back to contest again.
  • Bucket!
  • Robinson's catch-and-shoot mechanics are near perfect from the ground up.
  • From the moment he sets up his base until the moment he releases the shot, his technique is impeccable.
  • I prefer probably catch-and-shoot.
  • The rhythm and timing is a little bit different, but you can kind of get your base a little bit more prepared when you see the ball coming your way.
  • There was a time when catch-and-shoot specialists were relatively obscure role players.
  • Think about John Paxson and Steve Kerr on Jordan's Bulls teams, or Byron Scott or Danny Ainge in those old-school Lakers-Celtics battles.
  • But those days are gone, folks.
  • This is the three-point era now, and players like Robinson have never been so valuable.
  • It's kind of indicative of the times and the way the game's going, and that I go games without even thinking of taking a two-pointer.
  • So if I played in a different era, I probably wouldn't be jacking 10 threes a game, but it's my job on this team, and I take it with pride.
  • The numbers back up that pride.
  • An average Duncan Robinson three-point attempt is a great outcome for Miami.
  • Think about it this way.
  • Last season, an average Heat possession yielded 1.12 points.
  • That made them a top-10 NBA offense.
  • It's pretty good.
  • However, an average Robinson three-point try yielded 1.34 points, which is incredibly efficient.
  • Not only was Spolstra cool with him launching 606 triples, he designed his offense around getting him all those looks.
  • Robinson's numbers are incredible, but just how did he get so good?
  • How did your jumper get so wet?
  • People ask me that all the time.
  • There's no secret sauce.
  • Shooting-wise, you gotta find something that's comfortable to you and something that you can repeat, and then just rep it out over and over again until it just becomes muscle memory to the highest degree.
  • So, yeah, there's no secret.
  • People are always looking for one, but the secret is just in the sweat.
  • All that sweat equity is paying huge dividends in big moments for Miami.
  • Check out this example from game six of last year's Eastern Conference Finals.
  • After Bam Adebayo slips a screen set for Tyler Hero, Robinson's defender, Jalen Brown, makes a big mistake.
  • He drifts too far away from Robinson in the corner.
  • Hero sees it, and it's over.
  • The best part is you can hear one of Brown's teammates call him out.
  • Even the Lakers, who had the best defense in the league last year, had trouble with Robinson, especially in game five, when Robinson exploded for seven threes and powered the shorthanded Heat to a three-point win.
  • Take your eyes off him for a second.
  • You're gonna get beat, like Contavious Caldwell Pope does here.
  • Robinson notices KCP's gaze drift off of him, and he slides into a clean shooting zone.
  • Kicks it out.
  • Robinson left wide open, nails the three.
  • Different look, but same result here.
  • KCP collides with Alex Caruso, and that slip-up proves costly.
  • Up top, Robinson puts up a three.
  • It's good!
  • In this one, Robinson starts in the corner with KCP attached to his hip, but then he dances through a gauntlet of human bodies.
  • KCP gets caught up in that traffic, and it's another wide-open look.
  • My favorite example from this game illustrates just how fluid he is.
  • He morphs from an off-ball sprinter into a catch-and-shoot sniper with remarkable speed.
  • Duncan Robinson again.
  • That's good!
  • And the foul!
  • Duncan Robinson from downtown!
  • This kind of body control just isn't fair.
  • It's shots like these that command the ultimate respect from opposing defenses.
  • Even on the possessions, when he doesn't end up shooting, the sheer gravity of his constant threat demands defensive attention and opens up scoring opportunities elsewhere on the floor.
  • And that might be Robinson's most valuable contribution.
  • Sure, he launched 606 threes last year and made over 45% of them, but by taking defenders away from the action, he assisted his team in countless other possessions too.
  • Robinson has emerged as one of the best shooters in the world, which is a huge reason why Miami became Eastern Conference champions in the bubble.
  • Whether he's shooting or just running around, his NBA value far exceeds the expectations of an undrafted player who was a G leaguer just two years ago.
  • Robinson deserves all the credit for his breakout, but his emergence as such a force in the NBA also proves that three-pointers and the players that can sink them are only getting more important in this league.
