Jontay Porter: Shot Form Assessment


Porter displays excellent shooting form. His base is almost always square, contributing to his strong side-to-side accuracy. His slightly acute elbow angle is not quite ideal, but is still solid. It likely contributes to his issues with distance control: in an admittedly tiny sample he hit the center 56% of the time with a 90º elbow, 38% with a slightly acute elbow, and just 20% with an acute elbow. There are no issues with elbow flare, his guide hand or his extension. The one consistent issue is that he flexes his wrist more than half of the time. Overall his shooting form is very strong, and projecting him as a stretch big is a safe bet.
