4. Kyle Korver‘s Shot is Off: Maybe it’s a lack of offseason preparation, or just because he’s not fully recovered from his injuries, but Kyle Korver looked off last night against the Pistons. The Atlanta Hawks veteran scored only 7 points in 29 minutes and was a -9 on the floor on Tuesday. Korver only shot 1-5 from three-point range and looked a step slower moving off the ball.

Of course, it’s only one game and this perhaps is just Korver getting a feel for the game and the team early in the season, but it’s disconcerting to see the Atlanta Hawks’ sharpshooter struggle so much from the floor. His offensive production is key to the Hawks’ offensive scheme; and with Korver performing at peak efficiency, the entire offense suffers. Hopefully it’s just rust and Korver will get in a groove come Thursday against the Knicks.
