Clippers’ Montrezl Harrell has worked hard on shot creation this summer

Montrezl Harrell, Clippers

Los Angeles Clippers big man Montrezl Harrell says he’s worked hard this summer on being able to create his own shot.

Harrell is a beast in the paint. He does most of his damage in the pick-and-roll game. While the 25-year-old says he’s never going to stop being a rim roller since that’s his bread-and-butter, Harrell admits his game is going to be more versatile moving forward:

“I don’t get away from that because if a guy can’t stop it, he can’t stop it,” Harrell said, via Jovan Buha of The Athletic. “But at the same time, I know I could be able to get like I’m going to go to my running hook and be able to pull up where I’m at and knock the shot down with confidence. I’m going to be able to get to my spots on the floor where I feel that I can work and do the most damage at and be able to score and get a bucket from there.

“I feel confident in my game and where I’m at. We worked extremely hard on being able to create my shot and knowing my shot.”

Last season for the Clippers, Harrell put up 16.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game while shooting 61.5 percent from the field and 64.3 percent from the free-throw line. He played in all 82 regular-season games.

Harrell and Lou Williams lead the Clippers’ bench. Together, they will make LA a force to be reckoned with when stars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are on the bench getting rest.
