Let's face facts, the additions of Courtney Lee, Jeff Green, Jason Terry have been extremely underwhelming, almost to the point of looking like serious mistakes.
Production per 36 minutes, last 5 games...
13.5 Points, 5.9 Rebounds, 1.9 Assists, 49% FG, 40% 3PT, 82% FT
13.6 Points, 3.2 Rebounds, 2.9 Assists, 47% FG, 35% 3PT, 82% FT
10 Points, 5 Rebounds, 3 Assists, 50% FG, 33% 3PT, 100% FT
I know these are not mind blowing numbers, but they are
solid enough considering:
1. That the team is still learning to play together
2. The difficult stretch of games we just played through
Green and Terry's scoring numbers are only about 2 PP36 below what they averaged in their last successful seasons, while Lee's (10 PP36) is right about what he averaged with the Rockets last season.
We never expected any of these guys to put up Carmello Anthony type offensive numbers, and what they are giving us lately is up somewhat near what we had expected from them. i believe their numbers will certainly improve, but "extremely underwhelming"?
Right now our bench is giving us around 30 PPG. About 6 are coming from Lee and about 8.5 from Green. That's 35% of out bench scoring coming from those two guys, and those two guys are single handedly giving us as much offensive production as our entire bench did last season.
Sully, Wilcox and Barbosa have been the nice surprises.
Surprisingly our bench has been pretty productive and bout 3x stronger then last year. Our defense has also improved (though sporadically) since we started bringing Wilcox in at center rather than KG. In brif minutes Collins has helped out defense too at times, but Doc insists on ignoring him. Oh well.
