Articles about Tristan Spurlock

July 6, 2014

Tristan Spurlock - Spurlock just graduated from UCF, where he averaged 11.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.1 blocks in 28.5 minutes per game as a senior. He also shot only 41.7% from the field for the second straight reason, largely because - what are the odds? - the 6'8 forward likes to take his three pointers. Half of Spurlock's field goal attempts were three pointers, and he shot only 33,1% on them, which wasn't anomalous. He always shoots in the low thirties on his threes, and has always taken a lot of them. But then, Spurlock is neither a scorer nor a rebounder. He is a finisher, athlete, dunker, catch-and-shoot player and transition runner at best; he does not take it in the post, and while he wants to be a face-up scorer, he cannot get to the rim consistently and has next to no mid range game. What Spurlock does have is good size and strength for the three position, athleticism and decent defensive instincts, plus the frame to employ them. You can be a wing player in the NBA even if you can't take a dribble. Gotta shoot higher than those low 30's, though. Spurlock has nice jump shot form that suggests he can improve in this area, but he also has a history of inefficiency that confirms that he needs to.
