C's best 4-point shooters?

By Chris Forsberg

With all the scuttlebutt today about the feasibility of a 4-point line in the NBA, it got us thinking: Who are the best 4-point shooters on the Celtics this season?

So with help from Basketball Reference's shot finder, here's a look at Boston's success rate from 28 to 35 feet:

Jeff Green - 4-14, 28.6 percent
Jordan Crawford - 4-13, 30.8 percent
Jared Sullinger - 1-4, 25 percent
Brandon Bass - 0-1, 0 percent
Phil Pressey - 0-3, 0 percent
Jerryd Bayless - 0-1, 0 percent
Team totals: 9-36, 25 percent

Terrible you say? Well, keep in mind that a 25-percent 4-point shooter is just as good as a 50-percent 2-point shooter.
