Sam Hauser still hot

His ankle scare only slowed down Sam Hauser, without letting it cool. Injured against the Wizards, when he had just shot 10/13 at 3-points, the Boston shooter left his teammates for two games.

Before returning against the Pistons, then shining against the Bulls, in the absence of Jaylen Brown, Kristaps Porzingis and Jrue Holiday, shooting 7/8 at 3-pts.

“We live for these moments. When players are not there, we have an opportunity to show ourselves. As a competitor, we are hungry for that,” entrusts the shooter. “We are motivated by these matches. We want to show the coach that if we play in the playoffs, we will be ready. »

33 3-point baskets in six matches!

Over the last three matches, he has scored 21 winning baskets and this is a new franchise record.

“It’s a question of comfort. He knows his teammates are looking for him,” analyzes his coach Joe Mazzulla. “If we look at his shots, there are very good passes, with good timing. He knows he will be freed and served. »

And over the last six games he has played, Sam Hauser is particularly skillful and prolific with no less than 5.5 successful baskets per match at a 57% success rate. For comparison (and even if the sample is short), this season, Stephen Curry, the reference in this area, displays 4.9 successes behind the arc per game at 40% success.
