The return of Zhou Qi made Xinjiang a favorite for the new season. In the first 20 rounds of the CBA, Xinjiang scored 15 wins and 4 losses (sixteenth round postponed), and it was always second in the standings. position. Zhou Qi can contribute 22.5 points, 12.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.8 blocks per game. Although Zhou Qi has been questioned on the stage of the World Series, returning to the CBA stage, Zhou Qi really has to be one step higher. It's just a step higher than this, but it will also "eat food". When encountering some strong insiders and excellent technical insiders, Zhou Qi still can't cope.
In the twentieth round of Xinjiang vs. Shanghai's home game, Zhou Qi was defeated by opponent center Donatas Mortier Eunas. Zhou Qi made 3 of 14 shots, including 1 of 3 3-pointers He scored 11 points, 14 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 blocked shots, while Moody made 14 of 27 shots and scored 30 points and 28 rebounds in a super double double. In fact, Xinjiang's two insiders were blown up. Another insider, Eric Mika, scored 15 points and 10 rebounds on 7 of 14 shots. His 26 points and 24 rebounds were not as good as those of Motai.
There is no need to say more about Mika's performance. Although he can make a stable contribution, compared to Janel Stokes, Mika's defense and ball possession are somewhat inferior. I don't know whether Xinjiang will make adjustments. . Regarding Zhou Qi's lack of advantage in facing Motai is actually a matter of reason. This is both Zhou Qi's current characteristics and his shortcomings.
With the deepening of the game, Zhou Qi seems to have encountered some physical problems, and there are hidden dangers of injury to the knee, which still has a certain impact on his performance in the game. In addition to these factors, Zhou Qi's own shortcomings are also undoubtedly revealed in the game. First of all, Zhou Qi's body is not strong enough. From a visual point of view, there will already be an answer. Zhou Qi's body is relatively thin, which will make Zhou Qi lack of confrontation.
The lack of confrontation also makes Zhou Qi unable to show the strength of the inside players in the game. Some of his backs have no advantage when facing small forwards. As for a relatively strong inside player like Mo Tai, Zhou Qi cannot take any advantage. . Secondly, Zhou Qi's current play also has some problems. Because his body is not strong enough, his back and other technologies are not worthy of the game. Zhou Qi's positioning in the game is a space shooter. As a space shooter, Zhou Qi will spend most of his time outside, so his protection for rebounding is possible problem appear. In addition, Zhou Qi's attitude on the field will also be questioned, and sometimes there will be situations of inattention and inactivity. Xinjiang coach A Jiang said after the game that the team lost the rebound in the first half. These inside players Zhou Qi are responsible.
On the whole, Zhou Qi will be better as a system player. If he uses his core as an attacker, the effect may not be very good. However, Zhou Qi's role on the defensive end is very good, especially when the defense is in place. But Zhou Qi is hardly like Yao Ming and Yi Jianlian as the national team's offensive and defensive core, his characteristics and shortcomings are relatively obvious, and his age has increased year by year, and there is not much room for improvement.
