I know a dunk is only worth two points, but this year it seems we hardly get any. I doubt they keep stats on it, but this year has to be the worst in a long while. I'm not sure if it's lack of big man talent, or not having made enough good passes ... or good defensive steals. Maybe it's the new offense? I know other teams don't seem to have a problem dunking on us..
Another thing is the alley oops. I think I've only seen them try one at home (and it missed badly). Last year they at least tried a bunch ( and hit on maybe 50 percent of them).

don't know but we sure do miss a lot of jump hooks as our bigs have no idea how to face the basket

We only shoot about 50% on our dunks. The analytics support shooting more 3s

I swear we miss at least 30 percent of our dunks during warm ups ...

Watch the other end. They also miss a good number. It's usually because they all try to do a highlight dunk rather than just ramming it home.
