The Miami Heat are one of the best teams in the League right now. With a record of 13-8 and sitting at the second seed in the eastern conference, they have managed to play up to the hype coming into the 2021-22 Season.
And though the Heat has been an excellent start to the season, Shooting guard Duncan Robinson has struggled so far.
Robinson, who signed a massive five-year, 90 million dollar contract, is currently shooting 32.8 percent from three, short of his historic 44.6 percent from the season prior. He struggled during Monday’s games against the Denver Nuggets, shooting 1-9 from the three-point line.
Although Duncan has struggled to get his shot to fall, people throughout the franchise are still confident in Robinson’s abilities.
“I know Duncan is a heck of a shooter,” Heat guard Kyle Lowry said to the Miami Herald. “We all understand what he is, what he’s doing and how he can get the ball off, and how many shots he can make.
“Duncan knows exactly what he’s doing,” Heat teammate Max Strus said of Robinson per the Miami Herald, “He just got paid $90 million, I think he’s good enough. So he’s an unbelievable shooter. He’ll be fine. Trust me, it will all come around. It’s just a slump and he’ll get out of it.”
Robinson is still a lethal weapon in the Heat offense and should be more of an asset moving forward with Bam Adebayo out with a thumb injury.
