Maxiell’s Improved Shooting Leads To Career-High In Points

Jason Maxiell has a well-earned reputation as an undersized banger. For a majority of his career, he has contributed offensively with put-backs, alley-oop dunks and lay-ups.

With expanded playing time this season, the veteran power forward has become increasingly reliant on his mid-range jump shooting. When he equaled his season high with 19 points against Atlanta Friday, he scored five baskets from at least 15 feet away. He drained three more midrange shots during the third quarter of Saturday’s rout over Toronto.

During the first of five road games Monday night against Utah — a 105-90 loss — all three of Maxiell’s baskets came from at least 17 feet. He attempted another that didn’t fall with the team trailing by just three in the late going.
