马刺队前锋扎克·科林斯最近几周找回了自己的投篮手感。这位打了六年职业比赛的球员过去六场比赛场均能得到12.5分、6.8个篮板和2.3次助攻。

马刺队中锋扎克·科林斯决心通过强势收官来挽救令人失望的一个赛季。

这位打了六年职业比赛的球员赛季开始时是中锋首发球员,但主教练格雷格·波波维奇在他打了20场比赛后将他移至替补席,让新秀明星球员文班亚马从前锋位置移至中锋位置。

失去首发位置是在投篮低迷的情况下发生的,此前他在休赛期致力于让自己成为一名更好的射手,在上赛季以37.4%的命中率创造了个人职业生涯三分球最佳命中率。

花了几个月的时间,科林斯终于找回了自己的投篮手感。他在3月份的14场比赛中三分球命中率为42.9%,本月五场比赛后三分球命中率为33.3%,这是一个明显的进步,因为他在10月至2月期间的三分球命中率只有29.3%。

在最近的六场比赛中,科林斯场均能得到12.5分、6.8个篮板和2.3次助攻,三分球命中率为40%(15投6中)。在整个赛季中,他场均能得到11.1分、5.3个篮板、2.8次助攻,三分球命中率为31.3%。

科林斯在周三晚上129-87输给俄克拉荷马城雷霆队的比赛中首发出场,顶替因右脚踝伤病恢复而缺席的文班亚马,得了全队最高的20分。

“今年整体的投篮情况很糟糕,”科林斯说。“那绝对是我(下赛季)想要找回的主要方面。我明白对我们来说,特别是对我们球队来说,间距有多重要,所以我绝对想在下赛季回来做得更好。我可以整天和你们聊这个,但我绝对也为自己防守方面的进步感到高兴。我又回到了我是谁的状态。”

波波维奇说,他喜欢他最近看到的科林斯的表现。

波波维奇表示:“他正在成为一名真正的职业球员,一名我们知道每晚都能发挥怎样的水平的稳定球员。他是一个很好的竞争者。他的技术正在提高,他对比赛的理解也在提高,并且他变得越来越自信。”

新秀、双向球员得到上场时间

马刺队在周三晚上损失六名球员的一线希望是,它保证了第二轮新秀西迪·西索科和双向球员戴维·杜克小​​将、贾马里·布耶和雷匡·格雷的上场时间,他们在13分钟内投篮8投5中,其中包括三分球5投3中。

在 G 联盟度过了大部分赛季后,这四名球员在最后两场比赛中都得到了上场时间。

对阵雷霆队时,杜克在18分钟内得到6分7篮板。布耶在12分钟内得到2分1篮板1助攻1抢断。西索科在28分钟内得到14分5篮板3助攻,均创个人赛季新高。

波波维奇表示:“他们得到的每一分钟都是他们的学习经历。球场上发生了什么并不重要,重要的是他们执行并学习如何比赛,不仅要相互合作,还要提高他们个人的比赛水平,因为他们都是年轻人,都试图谋求事业发展。”

科林斯说,“很多球员站了出来。很多球员都很职业。在对阵一支非常出色的球队时被推入 NBA 比赛可能会让人不知所措,我觉得他们做得很好。”

马刺创造助攻纪录

马刺队对阵雷霆队时得到24次助攻,使他们本赛季的总助攻数达到2385次,创造了球队历史纪录。

前锋桑德罗·马穆克拉什维利说:“我觉得这是波普(教导的)0.5(秒)决策制定。波普告诉我们,‘如果你有空位,那就出手投篮。如果不是这样,就把球挥出去,去设置掩护或切入或其他东西。’而且这些家伙非常无私。我热爱和他们所有人都一起比赛。”

1983-84赛季的球队保持着此前的助攻队史纪录——2361次。

马刺队助攻次数最多的前十个赛季中有八个早于1990年。

Collins enjoying late-season surge

Spurs center Zach Collins is determined to salvage a disappointing season with a strong finish.

The sixth-year pro began the year as the starter at center, but coach Gregg Popovich moved him to the bench after 20 games to slide star rookie Victor Wembanyama from forward to the five spot.

Losing his starting job came in the midst of a shooting slump that followed an offseason in which he devoted himself to becoming an even better marksman after connecting on a career-best 37.4% of his shots from the 3-point line last season.

It took him months, but Collins has finally regained his stroke. He shot 42.9% from distance over 14 games in March and is shooting 33.3% after five games this month, a noticeable improvement after shooting 29.3% for the season from October through February.

Over the last six games, Collins is averaging 12.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists while shooting 40% (6 of 15) from downtown. For the season, he’s averaging 11.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists and is shooting 31.3% from distance.

Collins had a team-high 20 points in Wednesday night’s 129-87 loss at Oklahoma City while starting in place of Wembanyama, who was out due to right ankle injury management.

“Just had a rough year shooting overall,” Collins said. “That’s definitely the main thing I want to get back (next season). I understand how important spacing is, especially for us, so definitely want to come back and be better with that next year. I can talk to you all day about that, but I’m also definitely happy with how I’ve improved defensively as well. Kind of got back to being who I am.”

Popovich said he likes what he’s seen from Collins lately.

“He’s becoming a real pro, a consistent player who we know what we can get from night after night,” Popovich said. “He’s a good competitor. His skills are improving, his understanding of the game is improving, and he’s getting more confident.”

Rookie, two-way players gain minutes

One silver lining to the Spurs being down six players Wednesday night was it guaranteed playing time for second-round rookie Sidy Cissoko and two-way players David Duke Jr., Jamaree Bouyea and RaiQuan Gray, who finished 5-of-8 shooting, including 3 of 5 from 3-point range, in 13 minutes.

All four got minutes the last two games after spending the bulk of the season in the G League.

Against the Thunder, Duke finished with six points and seven rebounds in 18 minutes. Bouyea had two points, one rebound, one assist and one steal in 12 minutes. Cissoko had a 14 points, five rebounds and three assists in 28 minutes, all season highs.

“Every minute they get is a learning experience for them,” Popovich said. “It doesn’t matter what’s going on in the court, it’s about them executing and learning how to play, not just with each other, but improving their individual games because they’re all young guys trying to make a career.”

Said Collins, “A lot of guys stepped up. A lot of guys were professional. Being shoved into an NBA game against a really good team can be overwhelming, and I felt like they did a good job.”

Spurs establish record for assists

The Spurs recorded 24 assists against the Thunder, giving them a franchise-record 2,385 for the season.

“I feel like it’s the .5 (seconds) decision-making Pop (teaches),” forward Sandro Mamukelashvili said. “And Pop tells us, ‘If you are open, shoot it. If not, swing the ball, go set a screen or cut or something.’ And the guys are very unselfish. I love playing with all of them.”

The 1983-84 team held the previous club record of 2,361 assists.

Eight of the Spurs’ top 10 seasons in assists came prior to 1990.
