#10 George Hill
Last season after he was traded from the Cavs to the Bucks, Hill shot just 28 percent from 3-point range. This year, his first full season in Milwaukee, the recently-turned 34-year-old is shooting a league-best 48 percent from downtown. Although Hill, now a 12-year NBA veteran, has always been a solid outside shooter, shooting 20 percent higher from long distance is quite an extraordinary jump. The Bucks averaged the most points in the league prior to the hiatus, had the second best field goal percentage and made the fifth most 3-pointers. Their bench, specifically, knocked down the third most triples, with Hill connecting on 73 of them. For the Bucks to break through this season and reach the Finals, they will need their reserves to stay hot from 3-point land.
