Henry Abbott on Kevin Martin

Henry Abbott of True Hoop used Synergy Sports - an NBA video service - to break down Kevin Martin's opening night:

Pretty much any mistake the defense could make results in a scoring opportunity for Kevin Martin--without plays being called for him. He can clean up a whole bunch of garbage.

This is an important point to keep in mind as we all begin to plead for the offensive freedom of Kevin Martin. (As The Bee's Sam Amick alludes to today.) Martin, by virtue of being one of the most speedy and athletic guys on the court at all times, will get his. Even if Eric Musselman calls fewer plays for Martin, he can put up numbers like we saw Wednesday. He's that good.
