One way the Dallas Mavericks could help get Reggie Bullock going

Bullock just needs to see the ball go in the basket a few times to break out of his slump. He is one of the best shooters in the league, so fans should expect the jumpers to start falling quickly.

One way the Mavs could get him going is to get out in transition a bit more. Bullock scored 1.52 points per possession on 108 transition attempts last season. He is scoring 1.24 during his time in Dallas so far.

They have done well finding him in transition, but the Mavericks are 25th in transition possessions per game this season. Finding a few more opportunities for Bullock in the open floor could quickly break him from his shooting slump.

Head coach Jason Kidd is already playing more single big man lineups, so expect Bullock’s playing time to keep climbing as the season progresses. He is one of the Mavericks' best perimeter defenders and shooters, despite his slow start. Once Bullock gets rolling, it will be hard for coach Kidd to take him off the floor.

The best is still yet to come from Reggie Bullock and the Dallas Mavericks this season. Expect him to shoot over 37 percent from 3-point range and be the 3-and-D wing they thought they were signing in the offseason. Stay tuned to watch his play improve.
