Tristan Thompson trying to find the right shooting stroke


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson is trying to make a big change to his game entering his third season in the league, switching his shooting hand from his left hand to his right.

According to SportsNet.CA, Thompson has been putting in a lot of work this offseason while playing for Canada's national team. He is nearly ambidextrous, but has grown up using his left hand as his primary one for basketball.

"I was in Phoenix (last November) and I just started shooting right-handed and got a lot of compliments on it," Thompson said. "A week later when we got back to Cleveland and got one of the ball-boys to record me and I shot 100 jumpers with my left and 100 with my right and it was significantly better with my right-hand. There was just a better flow to it with my right, it looked smoother."

Thompson took a step forward in his second season, improving his field goal percentage from 43.9 percent to 48.8, but his rang was very limited. He attempted just 99 of 799 shots from beyond 10 feet, while making 36.3 percent on those attempts.

With the drafting of Anthony Bennett and the acquisition of Andrew Bynum, Thompson could find himself squeezed for playing time this season, unless he continues to make substantial improvements. He has shown solid progress with Canada, averaging 14.0 points and 7.5 rebounds per game in eight contests this offseason, according to The Plain Dealer.
