San Antonio Spurs’ draftee Adam Hanga and Hungary recently went 0-4 in the additional qualifying rounds for the FIBA EuroBasket 2011. They lost both of their matches to Portugal and Finland.
As those games progressed, Hanga’s production began to decline in each one. Hanga is Hungary’s number one option and most gifted athlete. He logged 33.75 minutes per game for the Hungarians but his shooting percentages and point production all took a downward slope effect.
Here were Hanga’s averages in the additional qualifying tournament: 4 games, 9.5 points per game, 5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.5 turnovers, and 2 steals.
Now, the plus to Hanga’s game in those games was his improved defense. In one game he had four steals against Portugal, he doesn’t have fouling issues either as the most fouls he recorded in a game were three.
Hanga is an athlete in the open court, if you watched his highlight video that our own Jeff Garcia posted last month, you can see the type of raw talent Hanga possesses.
In the future, he’s going to be a plus for the Spurs out on the wing as either a two or a three. The problem that I observed from Hanga through these four games was that he “loves” his three point shot. I mean, he absolutely loves his three point shot.
