Concerns over Collins’ Scoring Funk

Concerns over Collins’ Scoring Funk

Trail Blazers big man Zach Collins is enduring a rough stretch on the offensive end of the court. The shine surrounding Zach Collins’ superb start to his second year with the Trail Blazers is starting to fade. After receiving a larger role to finish his rookie campaign, it appeared that Collins was in the midst of a massive leap through the first 10 games of the 2018-19 season. Instead, opponents have adapted and the former Gonzaga standout is enduring a rough shooting stretch from beyond the arc. After a stretch of dismal outings, it has raised the question: how concerned should the...

Zach Collins Is Making Important Progress in his Second Season

Zach Collins Is Making Important Progress in his Second Season

While he hasn’t had a breakout sophomore campaign, Zach Collins is much better this season than he was as a rookie. The idea of a sophomore breakout is popular in sports. The thinking is that players have been professionals for a year, understand how the league works, and are adjusted to their teammates, so it stands to reason that they take a step forward.
