Martin, Collison Developing Chemistry On Thunder Second Unit
Kevin Martin has played well with the Oklahoma City Thunder’s second unit, and already has developed chemistry with Nick Collison.
Collison has registered 78 assists this season, 42 of which have gone to Martin.
“Him and (James) Harden had a great two-man game, and me and Brad Miller, we had a great two-man game,” Martin explained. “So it's kind of like me and Brad divorced, him and Harden divorced and me and Nick got together — in a basketball way.”
Collison and Martin have been so effective working the two-man game that Collison leads the Thunder with a 7.9 assist-to-turnover ratio, according to 82games.com.
“His basketball IQ is very high, so he knows when to do something and when not to do something,” Martin said. “He doesn't force anything. He's just a high IQ basketball player.”
