Doug Collins’s new starting lineup has turned Nick Young into a new player. He is still taking some questionable shots but his defense and passing ability have improved. Over the last ten games he is averaging 13 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists. He had back to back 20 point games and also had an 18 point game since he has gotten more minutes. His defense is improving and he is getting in passing lanes getting steals and frustrating opposing players. He gets to the hoop, but where he really hurts teams is from three, where he is shooting 38 percent for the season. Collins has raved about how he started to listen to him about becoming a better player. He stated that he took all those critiques in and has become more of an all around player. Collins now realizes that he is much better in the starting lineup than off the bench and the team has benefited from the new Swaggy P.
