E’Twaun Moore has eclipsed 30 points in back-to-back games, and people are starting to take notice of the Pelicans swingman. There’s nothing flashy about his game, but he’s proving to be one of the NBA’s most efficient wing scorers right now.According to NBA.com, Moore’s 56.3 percent field goal percentage is the highest mark by any player in the league that’s not a power forward or center by trade. Moore can score in a variety of ways, but nearly a third of his shots this season have been 3-pointers. He’s knocking down an astonishing 49 percent of his shots from deep so far, which ranks him sixth in the NBA. Moore’s teammates acknowledge that he has one of the NBA’s best floaters.Pelicans forward Wesley Johnson had never played with Moore before this year, but he did have the pleasure of facing off against him in college. Johnson said Moore has always had the same unassuming game. Related News NBA free agency rumors: At least 3 teams could be interested in Carmelo Anthony if he’s released “You know what’s funny, he was playing that way even back then,” Johnson said earlier this week, per NBA.com . “His floater, if it’s not the best (in the NBA), it’s right up there, because it seems like he doesn’t miss it. It’s just crazy how accurate he is with it.” Moore played his collegiate career at Purdue, and the Celtics drafted him with the No. 55 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. Moore didn’t play much for Boston and proceeded to bounce around the league. He also has played for the Magic and Bulls before signing a four-year, $34 million deal with the Pelicans in 2016.The 29-year-old torched the Raptors for 30 points in a 126-110 victory earlier this week. He’s averaging 16 points through 14 games this season.The Pelicans (7-7) could be poised to have their best season yet, and Moore likely will play a big role in their success.
