The Miami Heat will have yet another representative at All Star Weekend. Duncan Robinson will participate in the Three-Point Contest. Robinson has begun to establish himself as one of the top three-point shooters in the game.
On the season, he has a 43.8% three-point conversion percentage. He has proven himself to be quite the marksman for Miami.
Take the December 10 game against the Atlanta Hawks. He went 10-of-14 from beyond the arc, shooting at a 71.4% clip. In total, he scored 34 points on the evening.
The first game that he really began to come into his own was on November 20 against Cleveland. He went nine-of-15 from beyond the arc. We really began to see what type of shooter he was from distance.
Robinson has the third-highest three-point shooting percentage on the team. As it relates to this contest, he should be able to do pretty well. When he can get on a roll, it seems like he won’t miss. Robinson becomes the sixth Miami Heat player at All-Star Weekend.
Miami Heat have been here before
The last time a Miami Heat player participated in this was Mario Chalmers. He competed in the 2011-12 season.
It will be great to see Robinson compete on a national stage. In what is set to be a big weekend for the organization, he should be able to put up a fight. The full list of participants has not been announced yet, but there are sure to be some of the best shooters in the league.
It will be a fun weekend for everybody, and this will give Robinson more national exposure. He is certainly deserving of it given how much he has contributed so far this season. He is proving to be a key cog in the Miami Heat offensive attack. It will be imperative for him to keep it going as we inch closer the postseason.
