Taking advantage of the absence of Elfrid Payton and Dennis Smith Jr, the French has won the confidence of his coach, and especially he plays with confidence. He attacks the circle, shoots in first intention, and inevitably, he gains volume in the game of Knicks, and against Dallas, he delivered his most complete match in career.
Now, we must confirm every night, and why not Sunday against Cleveland. An opponent who relies on two young leaders / scorers, and the Frenchman will have a job. "In every game, he progresses David Fizdale notes in the New York Post. " He is more and more comfortable. There have been only eight games, but I think he will continue to progress. He will be more and more comfortable with the players around him, and more and more comfortable with his shot. As you can see, there is no hesitation. "
At ease with his shot but also to penetrate as we saw on his attempt to post on Kristaps Porzingis. " That's what I wanted "Appreciates his coach. " Several times in training, Frank tried to pay guys. I want him to be like this. Let him fight. Let him not think. Just that he is attacking, and if he can not, he can do the right thing. "
"It's good to see him show what he can do"
For the person concerned, his good performance against the Mavs does not change anything. He saw others: " It's just about sensations, and what the match will give. Even though I only played ten minutes, that's how I would have played He recalled, adding: " I am clearly more comfortable shooting. On each attack, we work to have open shoots, and once there is a position, we have to take the shot. "
Opponent of the French Friday night, but also his former teammate, Kristaps Porzingis was probably best placed to evoke this confidence and progress. Both of them liked each other and they stayed in touch.
" Frank was great. I know he's working. I know his work ethic and his state of mind. I'm happy to see him play, well. He showed what he could do. He defends permanently, but here he has gone on a course. It's good to see him show what he's capable of doing, but it's afraid that it's facing us. "
