Article Summary:

Hustle plays like the one above endear a young player to the fan base, but they build trust with the coaching staff.

“He’s a guy that I think can play in any system. He can play with any players. I love the way he pushes the pace, and he’ll make the other guys run. When he’s playing with the ball in his hands, he gets the ball up the court very quickly, and he will make the other guys get up the court quickly: he has that kind of leadership ability with the ball in his hands. He’s a fun player, and we’re excited to get him.” – Danny Ainge on draft night.

An interesting point to ponder is that Pritchard’s impact on games is coming against both starting level players and second units, not garbage time rotation players.

Granted, not all of the rookie’s drives in pick-and-roll play have been successful; in truth, more have looked like the above play.
