Idk - they’ve had three coaches and Dre’s stats are basically unchanged. The biggest thing for him is just hitting wide open threes. He gets tons of them and needs to convert.
I know others blame Trae Young. And although Trae has faults, they aren’t why Dre is still shooting in the low-mid 30s from 3.
Games on the crazy courts are for the tournament. That’s how you can easily tell.
That and rebounding. He’s not a great rebounder. Veccinie has talked about how his rebound % is super low for comparable players. Sometimes he can check out a bit, lose an aggressive edge.
I agree that so far it’s been very “meh”, but I’m holding my judgement until they get to the single elimination part in Vegas.
But the structure of this tournament is so weird that I have no idea when that is.
The most sedate double tech in the history of the game. Imagine if Draymond reacted like this
Obviously, Dre used a few of the magic words during his discussion with the refs.
Snyder’s a great coach, so he should be able to figure a way to unlock something in Hunter. Key for him is staying healthy. Injuries have really stunted his development.
The contract makes him a bit hard to move too. It’s not terrible per year, but it isn’t an expiring and Hunter’s injury history makes him a risky acquisition. If the Hawks have to attach assets to move him, they might as well keep him and hope he can stay healthy and figure out how to shoot 40% on catch and shoot 3s.
This Pablo Torre tweet from three years ago lives in my head rent free, and it’s the only thing I can think about whenever Quin Snyder is mentioned.
I always think of this…
Four, count 'em, FOUR Hoos named as the best pure shooter on their respective teams.
Brogdon made his return from injury tonight for the Blazers. 19 pts 5ast in 25 minutes
Game 2 back for Brogs, 24 pts (6-11), 8 ast to zero turnovers, 4 reb, 1 steal in 25 mins played
Sam had a good night including an alley oop dunk in a big win over the Bucks.
Sounds like he’s back in form.
How good are NBA dudes these days?
Sam Hauser is shooting 44.6% from Three point land…
That only ranks him 22nd in the league.
Last year that would have ranked 2nd.
Brogdon finished 4th last year at 44.4%.
51 guys are shooting over 40% on threes.
Somebody start a petition to put Sam Hauser in the dunk contest.
