COLUMN: Midseason takeaways from the Timberwolves

By John Miller

What I’m about to say might sound weird due to its rarity.

As the NBA is currently at the All Star break, the Minnesota Timberwolves safely hold a playoff spot. 1,032 more words

The Signing Day Hat Ceremony Has Come a Long Way In 20 Years

For all of human history, dating back thousands of years, when it came time for a high school football or basketball player of some note to sign a National Letter of Intent with the school of his choosing, that player’s teammates, friends, family and coaches would gather up in the school library, and there would be a short announcement, and the young prospect would sign on the line which is dotted, the local press would publish reports of the occasion, and that would be that. 757 more words

•  I’m not sure what Alvin Gentry’s doing by leaving both Boogie Cousins and Anthony Davis back in the lane while Karl-Anthony Towns spots up around the arc, particularly given that Boogie and AD are two of the bigs best suited to guard in space.  937 more words

明尼蘇達灰狼隊先發控衛Jeff Teague預計缺陣2至4個星期|Tyus Jones是否會獲得更多的機會來證明自己

明尼蘇達灰狼隊控衛Jeff Teague因為在上一戰與丹佛金塊隊的Gary Harris爭搶球時撞傷了左膝蓋,在經歷了掃描之後宣布是左膝蓋外側副韌帶一級扭傷,並將缺陣二至四個星期。雖然很多時候焦點都集中在隊友Karl-Anthony Towns、Jimmy Butler和Andrew Wiggins的身上,但是Teague仍然是灰狼隊進攻體系裡可靠的進攻啟動的起點。

隨著Teague的受傷,這也讓Tyus Jones有了更多的機會去把握以及證明自己。以下分別是兩人在數據上的一些比較。

在有限的上場時間內,Jones能夠交出與Teague不相上下的進攻和防守效率值,甚至在三分球的進攻上,Jones的命中率41.9%也比Teague的37.5%來得好,防守灰狼隊時還必須慎防Jones在外施放冷箭。本賽季十一月末的比賽Teague缺陣時,Jones扛起了先發控衛的位置三次,戰績是二勝一負。值得注意的是,這三場比賽Jones場均上陣40分鐘(全隊最高),繳出場均12.3分、6.7助攻、4籃板、4搶斷、0.3失誤的表現,命中率54.2%還有三分命中率41.7%。而個人淨勝分(+/-)高達45分,僅次於Butler的47分。(這意味著當Jones在場時灰狼隊比對手總計多得45分)

在灰狼隊總教練Tom Thibodeau最常使用的主要先發陣容(Teague、Butler、Wiggins、Taj Gibson和Towns),他們每一百回合可以比對手多攻下6.9分,而本賽季當Jones與其他四人搭檔時(至今總計出戰93分鐘),每一百回合他們則可以比對手還多攻下10.9分。

來到了職業生涯第三年,Jones本賽季確實打出了比較沈穩的表現,但就像我所說的,在有限的上場時間裡。一旦給予更多上場時間,曝光更多之下,Jones的弱點是否會被對手看破而影響了包括他自己的灰狼隊整體表現呢?的確這是個未知數,但是那三場先發還是證明了Jones有他過人之處。隨著Teague的受傷,Thibodeau應該給予Jones這樣的機會去發揮。當然免不了會有打不好的時候,但這就是進步和成長的過程。

Teague可能缺陣一個月的影響是很大的,考慮到灰狼隊接下來的賽程對手,Jones並不需要很急迫地想要打得有多出色才可以證明他的價值,只要能夠在這個位置把Teague不在的影響力減至最低,那就好。
