Jonas Valanciunas Improving Low Post Game

Updated

on

(Jonas) Valanciunas says he’s been working hard on free-throw shooting (he’s a career 77 per cent in the NBA) — and hook shots — during and after practices. He’s also honing his low-post game.

“That’s my strength,” he said.

“I need to perform in the low post, like a big man, trying to help my team by scoring in the low post.”

Lithuania coach Jonas Kazlauskas said Valanciunas “is becoming stronger and more experienced.”

Valanciunas is hoping the World Cup could give him an edge over players who took the summer off.

“I’m going to come back to Toronto ready for the season,” said Valanciunas, who is about to enter his third year in the NBA. “It’s like preparation for the season, you know, by playing against the best centres in all of Europe and all the world. So, it’s giving me a lift.”
