MILWAUKEE Compared to the rest of the NBA last season, the Milwaukee Bucks weren't necessarily a dynamite 3-point shooting team.
They ranked 16th in the league, pretty much right in the middle of the pack,and shot a decent, not great, percentage from beyond the arc (34.5 percent). But they did have one major improvement in 2012 when it came to shooting from long range.
Ersan Ilyasova didn't give the impression in the 2010-11 season that he would be especially effective from long range. At 6-10, he had the potential to be one of the stretch bigs that the NBA has fallen in love with in recent years, but at 29 percent from distance, he wasn't exactly setting the world on fire.

That appreciation undoubtedly came after last season, when an injury to the oft-injured Andrew Bogut left the Bucks without anyone to truly fill his center role.
Ersan Ilyasova improved his three-point shooting by 16 percentage points last season.
