Collins had a superb rookie season as he finished the season shooting 57.6 percent from the floor and 71.5 percent from the free-throw line. The rookie's highest scoring output came on Nov. 20 and Mar. 15 when he dropped 21 points in each game. Collins is signed for next year with Atlanta where he will make about $2.3 million.
Collins contributed 13 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-5 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and one steal across 31 minutes in Tuesday's 121-113 loss to the 76ers.
Collins has shown the ability to continuously post near double-doubles with points and rebounds, but hasn't flashed much more than that. Some nights he is able to post halfway decent assist numbers for a power forward, but his passing is inconsistent and he should be looked more for grabbing misses and cleaning up in the paint come next year.
Collins finished with 19 points (7-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 101-98 loss to the Heat.
Collins has double-doubled in consecutive tilts, and he has hauled in double-digit boards in four of the last five. Moreover, he has recorded 10 dimes and seven rejections during the same span while his minutes have continued to skyrocket. With 10 double-doubles to his name, the rookie seems like one of the safest bets when it comes to trusting the Hawks over the final four games.
Collins produced 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt), 11 rebounds, two blocks and one assist across 33 minutes in Sunday's 94-88 victory over the Magic.
Collins has now posted a block in each of the last five games, as his defense will keep him on the floor and give him more opportunities to be productive on the offensive end. His average of nine rebounds over his last eight contests has been consistent, but the point totals have fluctuated since he has no range and relies on finishing down low.
Collins was listed on the injury report with a nagging ankle injury, but his status was never really in much doubt. The rookie missed a pair of contests last week, but he'll now suit up for his third straight game after two full days off following Sunday's blowout loss to Houston.
