Aside from EJ's recent stuggles to shoot the ball well, handle the ball, keep up with lighter players, and make good decisions, he has continued to stuggle taking the ball to the rim. When he takes the ball to the rack, he runs a high risk of getting the ball blocked or having to alter his shot to the point of attempting a low percentage shot. His difficulty handling the ball of late almost eliminates the possibility of his being a effective point guard to rest Baron. His lack of height makes it difficult to handle all the chores of today's off-guard. When EJ has prolonged shooting dry-spells, his height disadvantage really comes into play. His recent shooting slump is alarming to Clipper fans as we haven't really seen him struggle like this shooting the ball during his short career. Hopefully his shooting slumps will be few and far between, or very short. Most scorers take the ball to the rack when they are in a slump. In EJ's case, his lack of height makes it difficult for him to shake a slump by driving the ball. When he misfires taking the ball to the hoop, that works to undermine his confidence, and confidence is what a shooter/scorer seeks to gain by making easy scores near the rim.
