In December of 2012, Jared Dudley had his most productive month of his career. The Suns swingman averaged a career-high 15.5 points for the month, while shooting lights out along the way.
In fact, only two other guards (the Spurs’ Tony Parker and the Heat’s Dwyane Wade) shot better from the floor in December. Dudley, who shot 53 percent from the field in December, drilled a league-high 62 percent from inside the arc to boot.
“Shooting is all about concentration, confidence, working on my game in the summertime, taking what’s available to me and playing within myself,” Dudley said. “Obviously I didn’t shoot the ball as well early on. I was just trying to get back in game rhythm and take game shots, but I think it just takes me a while to feel out the offense, the roles of certain people and when I went to the bench I caught my rhythm.”
That could be it, or maybe it’s what he’s eating. The Arizona Republic just wrote an in-depth piece on where the 6-7, 225-pound small forward enjoys to grub.
“If I want a sandwich I’m definitely a Jersey Mike’s guy,” Dudley said. “If I want a steak, I’m going to City Hall. If I’m doing sushi, I usually do Sapporo’s or Sushi Roku.”
