LeBron's three-point numbers are nosediving, but he says he'll keep shooting

LeBron James began the season shooting nearly 50 percent from three-point range, but since November his numbers have nosedived.

On Saturday in Utah, James went 1 of 6 from beyond the arc in the Heat's 94-89 loss. His three-point percentage for the season now stands at 35.8 percent after shooting over 40 percent last season.

James shot 48.8 percent from three-point range in 14 games in November, but his percentages have steadily declined since that impressive beginning to the season. He shot 35.1 percent from distance in December, 27.5 percent in January and he is shooting 26.3 percent from three-point range to begin this month.

James is aware of the trend, but says he has no plans of altering his game at this point in the season. James is shooting 63.5 percent this season on shots from inside the three-point arc.

"I’ve been shooting, but obviously it hasn’t been going in," James said of his three-pointers. "But I feel comfortable every time I take it, so you just got knock them down. I’m in a little funk from outside the three-point line, but I’ll get back to it.”
