Moe Harkless: Moe Harkless returns, shuns 3-point line

Moe Harkless: Moe Harkless returns, shuns 3-point line

This was the case with Portland's Maurice Harkless, who had a $500,000 bonus coming his way if he shot better than 35% from three-point range. Would you have done what he did or would you have hoisted some three-pointers?

$500k for the Trail Blazers Mo Harkless for 35.0% or above from 3. "He's got the hot hand", the Blazers' play-by-play announcer said; "Let it fly, Moe!" Heading into Wednesday's regulars season finale against the New Orleans Pelicans, Harkless was at 35.1 percent from 3 - meaning any miss would drop him below the mark. And the margin was three points.

Harden's triple-double helps Rockets over Wolves 123-118
Eric Gordon had 17 points and five rebounds and James Harden had 14 points, seven rebounds and six assists for the Rockets. F Andrew Wiggins' 3-point attempt at the buzzer missed the mark, and the Wolves lost 100-98 to the Thunder on Tuesday.

Before Wednesday's game, Harkless was asked if he would even attempt a three-pointer? The regular season is over now. In order to get there, Harkless pretty much shut himself down from beyond the three-point arc in the final few games. Unsurprisingly, he did not attempt a 3-pointer tonight - he said before that if the game were on the line with his team down three points, he would "pump fake it and try to draw a foul".

For this reason, Moe Harkless is the clear choice for the 2016-17 NBA Most Valuable Player Award. The box score for the Blazers' 103-100 loss to the Pelicans shows Harkless took six shots.
