Pau Gasol華麗轉身,空間型五號位新鮮出爐

(文:Mar 21, 2017 / BrunoPassos

馬刺本賽季季中最大的變動就是把未來的名人堂球員Pau Gasol放在了板凳上,由Dewayne Dedmon頂替他的先發位置。隨著Dedmon進入先發陣容,馬刺新的輪轉發生了更好的化學反應,其中目前最重要的變化就是Pau Gasol向現代空間五號位的成功轉型。

The Spurs’ biggest mid-season shakeup has been future Hall of Famer Pau Gasol’s move to the bench, with Dewayne Dedmon taking his place in the starting unit. While Dedmon continues to settle into the first gig as a starter and the team looks to build more chemistry with its new rotations, the most interesting takeaway thus far is how Gasol’s game has changed to that of a modern-day stretch five.

上個賽季在公牛時Gasol就開始更多地嘗試三分球,也是他在職業生涯中首次平均每場出手三分至少一次。來到聖安東尼奧之後這點並沒有太大的變化,作為先發他平均每場三分線外出手1.1次。其實,他46.5%的命中率完全可以作為一個主要的火力點,但馬刺隊的先發陣容裡不缺少出手點,這五個人在場從不會為進攻火力擔心。

Gasol was already familiar with the three-point shot last season as a Bull, averaging one attempt per game for the first time in his career. That didn’t change much upon arriving in San Antonio, as he put up 1.1 attempts per game as a starter. The fact that he was hitting those at a 46.5% clip suggested a greater volume wouldn’t be a terrible idea, but the Spurs’ starting lineup has a lot of mouths to feed and that unit wasn’t having any trouble scoring.

遠離肘區

Moving away from the elbows

讓我們來看看Gasol作為先發時的出手狀況:

Here’s a look at Pau’s shooting chart as a starter:

數據是有力的證明,即使Gasol已經36歲,他的進攻狀態依然火熱,這也極為契合的球隊的進攻理念,利用長距離兩分砍分,他更多的出手來自15-19英呎。

Those percentages are solid, with Gasol proving that, even at 36, his offensive game was ageing nicely. It also fit well with the team’s ethos at the time — Devastating Opponents: one long two at a time. More of his shots were coming from the 15-19 feet range than anywhere else.

然後在一月對上丹佛比賽前的訓練中左手掌骨意外受傷,這使格雷格‧Popovich實驗採用Dedmon作為先發中鋒。正如預期的那樣,這是一個取捨,馬刺隊犧牲掉一些進攻火力,轉而嘗試打造聯盟最頂尖的防守。

Then in January, the seven-footer broke a bone in his left hand during a pre-game shootaround in Denver, which allowed Gregg Popovich to experiment with Dedmon as the starting center. As expected there was a trade-off, with the Spurs beginning to forge an identity as the league’s top-rated defense, at the expense of some offensive punch.

對Popovich來說這就有了足夠的理由在Gasol在全明星周後回歸後繼續堅持這套輪換。去年夏天在諸多追求者中選擇了馬刺的Gasol,就像一個任勞任怨的老兵對球隊安排沒有任何不滿,而是投身比賽與球隊贏下了接下來的七場比賽。

That may have been reason enough for Pop to keep rolling with it when Gasol returned post-All-Star break. As is usually the case with the organization, there were no rumblings of discontent from the veteran center, who had chosen the Spurs last summer over a number of other suitors, and the team went on to win its next seven games.

更多出手, 更高效率

Greater three-point volume, even better efficiency

Gasol回來後狀態一直很出色。他每場比賽的上場時間不到23.1分鐘(之前先發時場均26.4分鐘),但他的大部分數據都保持穩定甚至還有上升。他的得分從每場比賽的11.7分提高到了13.7分,而他每場比賽的投籃出手數大致相同(先發為9.4;現在為9.3)。

Gasol has been excellent since coming back. He’s playing less minutes per game (23.1, down from 26.4), but most of his numbers have remained steady or improved. His scoring has improved from 11.7 to 13.7 points per game, while he’s attempted roughly the same amount of shots per game (9.4 as a starter; 9.3 now).

得分增長的原因是什麼呢?自從他回來後,Gasol平均每場投2.5次三分球。他的三分球佔出手比例是26.4%,遠遠高於他的兄弟馬克-Gasol的23.1%,後者是在本賽季的比賽中明顯重視三分球的另一個球星中鋒。

The reason for the improved scoring? Since his return, Gasol is averaging 2.5 three-point attempts per game. His three-point rate over that stretch is 26.4%, well above his brother Marc’s (23.1), another center who’s notably taken his game a step behind the arc this season.

而且,出手的增加並不是以命中率為代價的——Gasol在上個月三分球命中率是驚人的59.4%。只有雷霆的維克多‧奧拉迪波在過去的一個月有更好的命中率(每場至少1.5次出手)。

And that up-tick in volume hasn’t come at the cost of efficiency — Gasol has shot a crazy 59.4% from three in the last month. Only the Thunder’s Victor Oladipo has shot a better percentage over the last month (min. 1.5 attempts per game).

Gasol的成功祕訣

How Pau’s getting them

這是進入板凳陣容後Gasol的投籃圖,注意沒有三分線一步的投籃了——他先發時的主要攻擊區域,並增加了大量的三分球。

Here’s Gasol’s shot chart since the move to the bench — note the absence of shots at the elbows, where he spent a lot of his time as a starter, and the increase of three-point attempts above the break.

Gasol在底角也是巨大威脅,尤其是在強側有Kawhi Leonard可以持球進攻的時候。

Gasol is still a threat from the corners, especially on the strong side when Kawhi Leonard is handling the ball.

Gasol往往作為進攻中跟進者,在三分弧頂覓得大量良機。無論他與LaMarcus Aldridge和還是David Lee一通出場,另一個大個在場上走位,積極拉開空間和吸引對方內線球員。這給了Gasol在後面跟進的機會,找到一個空曠的出手位置。

Where he’s gotten more of a green light is at the top of the arc, often as the guy trailing a play. Whether he’s sharing the floor with LaMarcus Aldridge or David Lee, that second big is usually running the floor, looking to establish position and sucking in the opposing team’s big men. That allows Gasol to follow behind and step into an open look.

除此之外,他還更多利用擋拆進攻,無論是Gasol的單檔配合還是團隊交叉連續擋拆的配合,在持球進攻的球員吸引走防Gasol的球員之後找到機會。

Barring that, he’s also getting more looks off the pick and roll, as his defender sags off to help on the ball-handler. This can happen with Pau as the sole screener or as part of a staggered screen and roll.

空間上的進步

Improved spacing

Gasol不僅僅是從三分線外更多的出手,他在那裡站了更久的時間。看看他呆在三分線外一步不邁進去帶來的意義,下面的影片中,進攻的發起並不完美,但它以Patty Mills回傳給大個命中三分完美收尾。

Gasol’s not just taking more attempts from beyond the arc; he’s spending more of his time there, period. Keep an eye on the number of possessions where he doesn’t even e think to step in the lane. The following play doesn’t start out great, but it finishes with the big man swishing a three after retreating behind the line and getting the ball back from Patty Mills.

有Gasol坐鎮外線,給了馬刺隊裡諸如David Lee這樣不投三分的球員在場上得以更好的走位和向籃下切入。全明星賽後,David Lee的投籃命中率從59.7%增長到了67.6%,這也意味著36歲的Gasol不需要更多氣喘吁吁的做折返跑,這對馬刺的攻防轉換十分有利。

Having Gasol at the three-point line allows someone like David Lee, one of the few Spurs who doesn’t shoot threes, to roam more freely and do work around the basket. Since the All-Star break, Lee’s somehow improved his field-goal percentage from 59.7% to 67.6%. It also means the 36-year-old isn’t huffing and puffing his way back from the other basket at the end of the offensive possession, which can only help the Spurs’ transition defense.

馬刺全隊三分火力全開

The Spurs are collectively shooting more threes

不僅僅是Gasol投更多三分,馬刺隊整體的進攻也更加凶猛。在全明星賽之前,他們每場出手22.5次在聯盟裡排第27位,儘管他們的三分球命中率聯盟第一。自那時以來,他們每場比賽出手26.6次,在聯盟可以排在第十四,同時命中率高達37.6%。這其中一部分是由於Patrick Mills頂替Tony Parker取得更多的上場時間,但是球隊在過去兩場帕克歸來的比賽中平均也有28次出手,這意味著這一趨勢將繼續下去。

It’s not just Pau shooting more threes — the Spurs are bombing away more as a team. Before the All-Star break, they were 27th in the league with 22.5 attempts per game, despite being first in three-point percentage. Since then, they’re taking 26.6 per game, which is good for 14th in the league over that span (while knocking down 37.6% of them). Part of that has come with Patty Mills getting more minutes with Tony Parker out, but the team has also taken 28 attempts in each of its last two games with the Wee Frenchman back, suggesting the trend could continue.

Gasol不斷變化的進攻是馬刺在賽季結束前不斷嘗試提高的一個寫照。Popovich仍然在某些方面繼續實驗,但這一次嘗試似乎已經成功了。

Pau’s evolving offensive game is a snapshot of the Spurs’ continuous attempts to improve as the season rolls on. Pop’s still figuring things out in some areas, but this appears to be one adjustment that’s spot on.
