On October 13, Beijing time, the latest report from the US media, the Lakers coach Frank Vogel once again talked about the use of Russell Westbrook in an interview today.
In the previous two games, Westbrook has been very uncomfortable in the Lakers system. He averaged 21.6 minutes per game, only scored 5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists, shot 21.1% from the field and 40% from the three-point range. He totaled in the two games. Sent 15 turnovers.
But for Westbrook, Vogel did not criticize. He said that Westbrook made many mistakes because he wanted to cooperate with everyone too much.
However, today, Vogel’s tone has changed. This time, in the interview, he put forward new requirements for Westbrook.
Vogel said that in future games, Major General Westbrook will have the “green light” for three-pointers. But he hopes Westbrook needs to be smarter when it comes to shooting shots after the dribble, especially when he gets a chance through screens.
In the past two games, when Westbrook was on the court, opponents tended to adopt a strategy of shrinking the line of defense. Under this contraction, Westbrook wants to open up the offensive situation and can only use outside shots.
On the contrary, shooting, especially three-pointers, is not Westbrook’s strong point. In the last game against the Suns, Westbrook hit two three-pointers, but most of the time, his shots were very hesitant and the rhythm was relatively bad.
Obviously, the coaching staff is very anxious about Westbrook’s integration into the Lakers system, the fans are very anxious, and he himself is also quite anxious, but Rajon Rondo on the bench looks very indifferent to this matter, he thinks , I can help Westbrook.
“Westbrook is a very interesting person. We have a lot in common… He hasn’t played with an inside line like the thick eyebrow before. Westbrook needs to build more chemical reactions with the thick eyebrow. In the future, I will help him reduce his turnovers. “(Poirot)Return to Sohu to see more
