3 Blazers starters in top 10 Three Point Shooting

http://www.nba.com/statistics/player/3PointS.jsp?league=00&season=22012&conf=OVERALL&position=0&splitType=9&qualified=N&yearsExp=-1&sortOrder=4&splitDD=All%20Teams

Based on the league leader statistics on NBA.com, we have the following rankings. Notice that Batum is only 2nd to OJ Mayo who is shooting at an astounding 60%, while our very own Damian Lillard is tied for 3rd most 3pt shots made. Wesley Matthews is 7th as well. However, we can see that Lillard and Matthews have great percentages, both of them over 40% while Batum holds an average number with 36%.

What does this mean ? Should Batum be more selective with his attempts ? Does this emphasis the fact that we need Aldridge in the paint to collect missed shots ?
