12月28日: “…[Klay 汤普森]’这个赛季的表现令人失望,原始数据和先进数据都证明了这一点。”

1月8日: “Thompson’他的个人效能限于他’没有Steph Curry的地板上。”

Well that was depressing.  Twice taking an objective look at Klay 汤普森 in the last six weeks, I came away unimpressed with his play this season and questioned just how good he could become as a Warrior.

12月的文章更加乐观,理应如此。汤普森像任何其他射手一样容易出现不稳定的情况,而且当他在金州勇士队中找到自己的角色时,他应该在今年年初获得一些回旋余地’的冒犯。假设他是有道理的’d终于来了,兑现了他在去年春天和整个夏天展示的诺言。汤普森’2012-2013年令人失望,但几乎没有损失。

Just under two weeks later, digging deeper into the numbers, there was a major reason for concern.  On/off-court analysis made it clear 汤普森 was a far superior player when Curry was 上 the bench.  Considering the latter’s worth, if the organization eventually had to make a choice between them it was obvious Curry would be the answer.  And even if the situation never became that dire, it made sense to assume 汤普森’如果他不能的话,他的上场时间会随着2013年的过去而减少’t perform in Curry’s backcourt.

Now into February, 上e thing stands out above all else: 汤普森 read both 文章s, was fueled by the constructive criticism and has used it to play his best basketball of the season.  That’可能只是一小部分–毕竟,这只是一个博客,而这些只是文字而已–但是,这是什么呢?’自从新的一年开始,这是他的主要,重大的进步。最好的是’相对于他的个人总人数和他累积的总人数而言’玩咖喱。

Since January 29th, 汤普森 has averaged 18.3 points per game 上 45.2% shooting from the field and 40.7% 上 three-pointers, numbers that dwarf those compiled before that fateful 文章 was posted the day before; the same scoring and shooting splits at that point were 15.9/40.0%/37.6%.  Even better, his true shooting percentage is up 6.2 points to a blistering 58.1%.

It’s not all glowing, though; 汤普森 still isn’t showing the varied offensive game we thought he would this season.  His usage rate is pretty much stagnant, having risen just two-tenths of a point since January 29th.  In fact, across the board his usage numbers and shot locations have barely changed since the January 29th split.  Now, 汤普森’就像我们一直都知道他可以那样投篮。它’可以肯定地说我们赢了’在本赛季剩下的时间里,他并没有看到很多运球或发球方面的发展,但是在过去的六周左右,他的效率数据出现了明显的变化,这足以使人们乐观。

然后那边’咖喱方面。让’让屏幕截图进行交谈(单击以放大图像)。

截至1月29日:

自1月29日起:

It should be noted that 汤普森 played four full games without Curry in the month of January.  He really struggled in the first two against Miami and San Antonio, but put together his best back-to-back of the season last week in wins over Cleveland and Dallas, combining for 59 points 上 24-42 (57.1%) FGs and 9-15 (60.0%) 3PTs.  But success with Curry 上 the bench was to be expected given the results of the season’前10周。它’s what he’与应有的全明星阵容一起完成的’值得鼓励。

汤普森’他的投篮次数实际上是否相同’自1月29日以来,无论是否与库里(Curry)一起打球,考虑到他与骑士和小牛队的突破表现所设定的惊人速度,都会给人留下深刻的印象,以缩小样本量。基本分数也是如此;他’自分手以来没有Curry的场均得分为21.3分/ 36分钟,而Curry场均得分为17.2分/ 36分钟’在地板上,但那漫长的夜晚使后一个标记高涨。什么’值得注意的是,Curry中的新数字与旧数字之间的关系如何,’s another feather in 汤普森’s cap: he’现在比他当时每36分钟得分1.4分。

Of course, this is all a roundabout way of saying 汤普森 is playing much, much better of late.  Whether his early struggles were a fluke and his initial numbers concerning Curry were a statistical anomaly remains to be seen, but at this point each slant is trending up.  And not coincidentally, so is the 勇士’春季快到的前景。

    好东西。的“pre-post”分析是经典的。现在您需要做的是根据两个时间范围内的对手和/或步调将数字关联起来
