Yeah, for sure he could, but it still wouldn't be luck. When it's all said and done, it comes down to skill. If what you said indeed happens, then that'll mean the shots he's now banking off the posts were at the "bad" end of the distribution of his shots in general, and that he's more accurate than I seem to give him credit for. And I'll be wrong and he'll be able to have his stupid celebration like he just wrestled a mammoth barehanded after he scores
But there's no bad luck in just barely missing, that's all I'm saying. I might just be extrapolating from a misrepresentative sample.
Also, let it be known that I think he's actually been playing great this season.
