"Wagner's Wager"

Brian has written about the idea that the team's 3-point shooting seems to live-or-die based on the result of Wagner's first three.

Well, someone on reddit did an analysis, and it doesn't seem to be a statistical reality. Obviously, it was probably never a "real" thing anyway, but it's always fun to do the math.

I always felt the same was true of Rasheed’s first three, only the opposite; if he made it they’d struggle because he’d fall in love with shooting from outside.
