Darren Collison: Bruin on Fire

Take a look at Darren Collison’s numbers since replacing the injured Chris Paul in the starting lineup for the Bizarro Hornets:


Min FG % 3P % STL AST PTS
1/30 47 4-11 43 0-0 0 18 17
2/1 36 7-18 39 1-3 33 1 14 16
2/3 32 4-12 33 1-3 33 0 9 9
2/5 40 7-14 50 3-5 60 0 4 17
2/6 42 9-17 53 1-4 25 1 4 24
2/8 47 12-22 55 1-2 50 4 9 27
2/10 42 10-16 63 1-2 50 4 9 25
total 286
336
251 10 67 135
AVG 41 0 48 0 36 1.4 9.6 19

That’s 19/10/1.4 per GAME from your rookie point guard.

The Rancho Cucamonga native (Eat at Tio’s!) is another one of the much-maligned Ben Howland‘s progeny that improved throughout his tenure, and continued to thrive even at a higher level (Arron Afflalo, Russell Westbrook, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Cedric Bozeman, Ryan Hollins, Jordan Farmar, Matt Barnes though he’s was technically Lavin’s).

Collison is slight but insanely fast and was key in a couple of UCLA’s Final Four runs.  Projected to be a solid role player at best in the NBA, his impact – if any – was not supposed to be immediate.

It has been only six games as a starter and the numbers are stout. The key will be performing to this level over the long-term, but welcome aboard, DC – keep making the UCLA Bruins fans proud.

    Daren Colison is probably the fastest player ive seen on the court. that guy flies, im glad that he is in for chris paul. who is probably the most overrated point guard in the league. good work though for daren.
