 which is as bizarre as it is fascinating. On Dec. 16 last season, Wade had seven made threes. He wouldn’t hit another one all year, rarely taking them but still missing any  FIFA Coins attempt he did hoist. Then, in Miami’s two playoff series, Wade shot 12-of-21 behind the arc in 14 games.On Thursday, Wade, Butler and Rondo combined to shoot 9-of-14 behind the arc. Statistically

all three are more likely to regress. But all three have also shown recent signs of shooting better than at any other point in their career, which matters. Opponents will make them hit shots all season, allowing Rondo jump shots over other options. But eventually

 if those shots keep going in, teams will have to readjust.More interesting is how quickly the offense looked a little more like the one Fred Hoiberg wants to run. This isn’t anything revolutionary, but look at the quick movement that gets the Celtics off balance enough for a Felicio alley oop.         WELCOMETO

Washington 42-29 and consistently found ways to finish in the paint against a young front line for the Huskies. Yale made the NCAA Tournament for the first time FIFA Coins  since 1972 last season and upset Baylor once they got there. The Bulldogs are a good team even without injured star point guard Makai Mason, but this is a game Washington shouldn’t lose.                    

 Of the seven players who played major minutes for Romar, four were sophomores, two were freshmen, and just one was a senior. No one expected Washington to lose Dejounte Murray and Marquese Chriss at the onset of last season, but both broke out in their freshman campaigns even as the team could only make the NIT.
