  Nobody has made more three-pointers so far during the 2016-17 NBA season than the Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry. That's no surprise: Steph has led the NBA in treys four years running, and it's more likely than not that he'll continue to do so for as long as he's able to lift his arms over his head. The surprise is who is second on that list. Not Klay Thompson or Damian Lillard or C.J. McCollum or James Harden or Kyle Lowry or Kyle Korver or J.J. Redick or anyone else who has finished in the top five in made threes in any of the past five seasons. It's Houston Rockets guard Eric Gordon.
  本赛季可没人比库里投进过更多的三分球了。目前为止他一共投进了101记三分[译注1]。当然,这一点也不足为奇,因为在过去四年里,库里一直在三分球命中数上领衔全联盟。本赛季也是一样,只要他还能打,似乎这项桂冠就还是他的囊中之物。PS:(此前三分命中数已不止这个数字)。不过排名第二的人还是令我们大吃一惊,此人不是克莱-汤普森,不是JJ-雷迪克,也不是达米安-利拉德,更不是CJ-麦科勒姆或者詹姆斯-哈登,甚至近来火力十足的凯尔-洛瑞也没能排到第二的位置。这些人在过去的五个赛季中都是联盟中响当当的三分射手,可是如今排在第二位的,却都不是他们当中的任何一位。这个人就是火箭队本赛季新引进的得分后卫,埃里克-戈登

  In terms of sheer volume and hit rate, Gordon is sniping from three this season like Steph did during his first MVP campaign. (In other words, at a rate previously unheard of before 2014.) Gordon's launching from deep 8.2 times a night, and he's knocked down 43.9 percent of those attempts so far. Compare that to 2014-15 Curry, who connected on 44.3 percent of 8.1 attempts a night. They obviously came to those attempts in different ways: Gordon plays primarily off the ball and Steph almost always has it in his hands, so 67 percent of Gordon's attempted threes have been of the catch-and-shoot variety while the same was true of only 43 percent of Curry's attempts two years ago. But yeah, it's been that kind of start to the season, and we're now almost a third of the way through.
  如果单看三分球出手的数量以及命中率,戈登本赛季在三分球方面的表现已经达到了库里在2015年夺得MVP时的标准。换句话说,他目前的三分球水平已经超越了2014年的库里。戈登目前每场比赛在三分线外出手8.4次,命中率达到了44.2%。而2014-15赛季的库里场均出手8.1次,命中率为44.3%。不过他们在三分线外出手的方式却截然不同:戈登更多的采用了无球进攻的方式,而库里则更喜欢持球从三分线外开火,因此戈登有67%的三分球出手都是在接球即投的情况下完成的,相对库里当时只有43%的三分球出手来自于队友的传球。

  Several factors are contributing to Gordon's uptick. First, there's the fit. Watching a Rockets game, it would be hard to blame you for feeling that Gordon wasn't so much born back in 1988 as he was constructed in a lab with the express purpose of having him play for Mike D'Antoni one day. Gordon has always been at his best when allowed to be aggressive and when given the opportunity to attack if he has an advantage on his matchup. There isn't a more aggressive or attack-minded coach than D'Antoni. Gordon must have recognized this on some level, because when he hit true free agency for the first time in his career (the Pelicans famously matched a max contract he signed with the Suns in restricted free agency in 2012, even after Gordon publicly stated that his heart was in Phoenix), he made sure he got himself down to Houston to play for Mike D. It's been such a good fit that Gordon has even willingly moved to the bench, something he scoffed at in New Orleans.
  戈登的数据增长得益于以下几个原因:首先,戈登终于来到了一支非常适合自己的球队。看看火箭队的比赛吧,人们很容易就会产生这样的错觉,这家伙一定不是1988生的,他绝对是按照德安东尼的战术意图制造出来的吧!每当球队需要他打出侵略性的时候或者出现进攻机会的时候,他总能立刻进入状态。事实上现在联盟中再也没有哪一位教练比德安东尼更崇尚侵略性和进攻思维了。这一点至关重要,因为当戈登在人生中第一次迎来自由球员的选择的时候,他得明白自己是不是要下定决心留在火箭队为德安东尼打球。戈登自己也明白德安东尼的体系有多么适合自己,因此即便是成为球队的替补他也心甘情愿。换做是在鹈鹕队时的戈登这一点简直是难以想象的。

  That brings us to the second factor: Gordon's bifurcated role. Early in the season, while Patrick Beverley was still working his way back from injury, Gordon spent most of his time on the floor playing off the ball, next to James Harden. Gordon started nine of the first 11 games and he fared quite well: 16.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in 32.4 minutes per game with a 42-40-85 shooting line that translated to a .567 true shooting percentage.
  接下来让我们再看看第二个原因:戈登是一个火箭所需要的双能卫。在本赛季初段,帕特里克-贝弗利还在养伤的时候,戈登就已经在哈登身边打无球进攻了。在前11场比赛中,他有9场比赛都作为先发出场,而且表现完美:场均16.3分3.0篮板2.2助攻,每场比赛打32.4分钟,交出一份42-40-85的投篮命中率,如果换算成真实命中率的话,也达到了56.7%。

  Gordon has been even sharper coming off the bench, though. He's chipped in 18.1 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.8 assists in 29.6 minutes per game, with a 46-47-75 shooting line that translates to what would be a career-high .625 true shooting percentage. And he's done it while being asked to create more of his own looks: 43 percent of his baskets since moving to the bench have been unassisted, compared to 26 percent as an early-season starter.
  当贝弗利复出后,戈登来到了替补席,不过他的表现反而更为犀利。在出场时间缩减至场均29.6分钟的情况下还是得到了18.1分2.4篮板2.8助攻,同时命中率也提高到了46-47-75,如果换算成真实命中率就是62.5%。虽然成为了替补球员,但是戈登却得到了更多自主进攻的机会:当他替补出场后,有多达43%的进球不是来自于助攻,而当他首发出场的时候这一数字只有26%。

  The key has been his work during the 11 minutes a night he now plays next to Beverley rather than Harden, shifts during which he acts as the primary ball-handler and top scoring option. In those minutes, Gordon is carrying a monstrous 35.1 percent usage rate, per NBAWOWY, and an utterly absurd .703 true shooting percentage as well. That work has helped Houston go from getting outscored by 22.1 points per 100 possessions with Harden off the floor through their first 11 games, to annihilating opponents by 14.8 points per 100 possessions in Harden-less minutes over their last 13 contests. That'll go a long way toward turning a ho-hum 6-5 start into a scorching 12-2 push featuring wins over the Blazers (twice), the Jazz, the Warriors, the Celtics, and the Thunder.
  产生这一反差的关键在于,如今戈登每场比赛有11分钟的时间是与贝弗利一起搭档完成的,此时戈登就变成了球队的主要持球者和头号进攻选择。在这些时间里,戈登的使用率高达35.1%,而且他的真实命中率更是疯涨到了70.3%。这一调整简直具有化腐朽为神奇的力量。在赛季初的11场比赛中,哈登不在场时,火箭队在每100回合中净输对手22.1分,而在最近的16场比赛中,当哈登下场休息时火箭队依然能够在每100回合中净胜对手14.8分。在战绩上,火箭队的表现也是判若云泥。在赛季初的比赛中火箭的战绩不过是区区6胜5负,而在最近的14场比赛中火箭队则取得了12胜2负的战绩,这些胜场中还包括对阵开拓者,爵士,勇士,凯尔特人和雷霆等强队所取得的胜利。

  The flexibility to be one kind of player when Harden is on the court and another entirely when he leaves has made Gordon a key swing player in the Rockets' three-guard rotation. His shooting and gravity when he plays off the ball make him a perfect fit for the Harden-led offense. For stretches, he's another in the army of shooters surrounding the endless series of pick-and-rolls the guy with the Beard navigates. He slides from one passing lane to another, always ready to fire or to attack a helpless closeout defender with a pump fake and drive, all at a moment's notice. They've even become dangerous when working 1-2 pick-and-rolls themselves.
  戈登在哈登出场时采用无球打法,当后者下场时则又切换成主控球员。他的全面发挥成了火箭队三后卫轮换体系获得成功的关键所在。他的投篮能力以及对防守者的牵制作用与哈登主导的进攻相得益彰。关键时刻,他就是在无限挡拆中穿梭于“大胡子”周围的那个冷血杀手。他从一个空档滑步到另一个空档,时刻准备接球投篮,当他接球准备进攻的时候,又能轻易的通过投篮假动作甩开绝望的防守者,杀向篮下。当哈登与戈登之间玩起了挡拆,这对组合的威力甚至更为恐怖。

  Then, as soon as the guy orchestrating it all takes a seat on the bench, Gordon moves into the driver's seat. He enters attack mode, hunting for his shot both off the catch and off the bounce, from all areas of the floor.
  当球场的指挥官,哈登走上替补席休息的时候,戈登又摇身一变,成为了犀利的突破手。当他切换至攻击模式后,不管是接到传球还是自主持球,戈登在整个前场都能轻松发动攻击。

  You may be wondering where, exactly, this "Phoenix Suns Era Joe Johnson" version of Eric Gordon has been, and that's where we get to the "slow your roll" portion of the program. He's been on the floor for all 25 of the Rockets' games so far, but the deepest Gordon has played into any season since his rookie year without getting hurt is 41 games. He played only 56 percent of the Hornets/Pelicans' contests during his five seasons in New Orleans, with games-missed totals of 57, 40, 18, 21, and 37. Being in a bench role where he plays fewer minutes and is basically acting as a standstill shooter for much of his time on the floor should help ease his physical burden, but this is still a guy prone to breaking down playing for a coach who loves riding his horses, many of whom have eventually broken down themselves.
  或许有人会问,这么牛逼的戈登,前些年去哪儿了?他现在的发挥简直就像是“太阳时期的乔-约翰逊”。这也是我们常说悠着点儿的原因。目前戈登出战了火箭队全部27场比赛,可是自从新秀赛季之后,戈登最多一次在单赛季健康的连续比赛记录也不过是41场而已。在过去的五个赛季中,戈登一共只为新奥尔良鹈鹕(黄蜂)队出战了56%的比赛,加起来一共缺席了173场。这回他在火箭队坐上了替补席,出场时间少了,而且大部分时间也是作为一名投手出现在场上,这将在很大程度上缓解他的身体负担。但士为知己者死,戈登遇到了识人用人的德安东尼,也一定会不惜体力的全情投入。而德安东尼过去有不少弟子都遭遇了伤病的问题,这不得不说是一个隐藏的风险呢。

  D'Antoni and Gordon have struck up a perfect marriage here, but they also have a delicate balance to maintain in order to make sure it lasts, not just through this season but over the next four years of Gordon's deal. They have to be careful to put as much on Gordon's plate as he can handle but not more, lest he buckle under the weight. Luckily, they have a good foundation supporting them that should allow both men to thrive.
  目前看来,德安东尼和戈登的配合堪称完美,但是他们必须想办法继续保持这种微妙的平衡。不仅仅在今年,戈登的合同还剩下四年,他在火箭还有很长的路要走。因此德帅必须巧妙的掌握好戈登的出场时间,避免其膝盖不堪重负。幸运的是,火箭队目前的条件不错,足以支撑二人携手共荣。
