On October 28, Beijing time, Klay Thompson didn’t feel good shooting at the beginning of the season, but coach Steve Kerr was not worried at all.
The Warriors started the season 2-2 and Thompson averaged 11 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. His minutes are limited, averaging 22.3 minutes per game.
The shooting percentage is a bit concerning, at just 28.6 percent from beyond the arc. According to depth statistics, he only shot 20% of his three-pointers after catching the ball, and he was 1-for-8 from open three-pointers.
For a first-class shooter, such a statistic is surprising. But after all, he came back from injury, and he only played 4 games in the game, the sample is still small, and it cannot explain too many problems.
Coach Kerr believes that Thompson has a problem with slow heat. “His shooting has always been slow, and he was like that before he got hurt,” Kerr said. “I don’t think it has anything to do with his injury. He’s always been slow to start the season.”
Indeed it is. In the first four games of the 2018-19 season, Thompson shot only 13.6 percent from three-point range, and in the 2016-17 season, he shot 10.7 percent in the first four games.
As Thompson’s playing time gradually increases, he also has the confidence to regain his touch. (Angkor)
