Will Sullinger keep chucking 3s?

For all of the upside that Jared Sullinger shows by chipping in 14.1 PPG, 8.1 RPG and 1.0 3-PPG, the rest of his statistical game is not appetizing. To that point, the big man averages just 0.7 BPG and shoots just 44.4 FG%. Part of the reason his FG% is so low is that he holds a 28.0 3-FG% for his career and is shooting only 29.7 3-FG% on 3.4 3-point attempts per game this season.

Things have been particularly rough from beyond the arc for Sullinger of late, as he has converted just four of 24 attempts over past six games. He missed all three of his 3-point attempts Friday, but coach Brad Stevens thinks it is fine for Sullinger to keep chucking.
