    This, and add in put backs on 2 pointers. I don't have stats, but if a team is trying to take 3 pointers all the time the entire team will often be beyond the 3 point arc. Not the best place for offensive rebounds. Yet when attacking the basket there will be far more players in position for a put back.

    So with shooting two pointers you may not get more points per shot, but you will get more free throws and more shots at the basket. That leads to more points.

    There is a place for 3 point shooting, but making it the major weapon or the only one is not the best strategy.
