ORLANDO – Henry Ellenson is a gifted offensive player.
At 6 feet 11, 240 pounds, the Detroit Pistons' second-year power forward is an intriguing blend of size with nifty ball-handling and scoring moves.
But the key to unleashing his offensive potential is becoming a solid three-point shooter.
His latest performance can be considered a good sign.
Ellenson was 4-for-8 from three-point range in scoring 29 points Wednesday afternoon in the Pistons’ 87-82 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.
The Pistons move to 3-1 on the week.
But while Ellenson shot the three-ball well, it was two traditional buckets in the last three minutes that helped to stave off the Hornets (2-2).
First-round pick Luke Kennard scored 14 points for the Pistons.
