Indiana Pacers: 3 Improvements Victor Oladipo Must Make in 2018-19

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Consistency at the Free Throw Line

Finally, Oladipo showed a brand new offensive game during the 2017-18 NBA season. He was able to average 23.1 points per game, which was more than anyone was expecting from him. As good as he was, there was one area that Oladipo struggled with on offense.

That area was free throw shooting. Oladipo shot just 73.2 percent from the line last season.

There are very few defenders in the NBA that can keep Oladipo in front of them. That alone opened up many free throw opportunities for the Pacers’ star shooting guard last season. Converting foul shots may not seem like an area that can be the difference between advancing in the playoffs and not advancing, but Oladipo cannot sit around and accept last years numbers.

If Oladipo can become an 85 percent foul shooter, his numbers will rise in 2018-19. Cutting down on the missed opportunities for points would be a major plus for the Pacers and free throw shooting for Oladipo must be improved.
