Statistic Scarcity & Abundance
Wednesday, Nov 21, 2018

Ryan Knaus analyzes which statistics are scarce and abundant among this year's top-200 players, and much more.

The Milwaukee Bucks are 12-4 to start the season with the best net rating in the NBA, outscoring opponents by 10.4 points per 100 possessions. New coach Mike Budenholzer gets a lot of credit for that, he modernized what the Bucks did under Jason Kidd. Budenholzer has got the Bucks playing much faster (more than seven possessions a game), has put in an open offense with floor spacing and encouraged his players to shoot from three (last season 29.7 percent of their shots were from three, this season it’s 43.7 percent), and put in a simplified defense focused on protecting the rim and taking away easy buckets.

Caris LeVert is miraculously expected to return this season, but should fantasy owners bank on his help?

The clouds have been forming around the Boston Celtics for a couple weeks now, as the team so many predicted would run away with the East has been more of a rundown squad that's barely above .500. No matter how strong a verbal commitment may sound and come across, verbal commitments have to be embraced with a ginormous asterisk next to them because -- as we've seen before -- the best laid plans don't always work out as anticipated.

The battles keep coming for the Sacramento Kings. After surviving the drama of the weekend and taking down a red-hot OKC Thunder team on Monday evening, the Kings head back out on the road. They'll face off with the Utah Jazz in a pre-Thanksgiving game at Vivint Smart Home Arena. Head coach Dave

Despite owner Dan Gilbert’s protestations about tanking in 2018-19, the writing is on the wall in Cleveland 15 games into the season. The Cavaliers are 2–13 to start the year and on a fast track to the top of the draft lottery. J.R. Smith recognized as much once the season began.

YAHOO

The Sixers look to extend their undefeated start to the regular season at Wells Fargo Center to nine games tonight with the Pelicans (10-7) in town. Despite standing at just seventh in the Western Conference, the Pelicans are just two games out of first place, behind the first-place Trail Blazers (12-5). The Pelicans also come into tonight's game averaging the second-most points per game and assists in the league to couple with their 48.6 field-goal percentage.

The 2018-19 NBA season truly feels like the first one in quite some time where it doesn't feel absolutely ridiculous to pick the field over Golden State in terms on NBA Championship odds. The Warriors have dealt with the ongoing Kevin Durant vs Draymond Green beef in swift Warriors fashion, yet something still feels off. Steph Curry's absence magnifies the problems with Golden State's roster and they have lost three games in a row averaging a miserable 95.6 points per game over that stretch.

When a fan and "Grandma Drew" were pulled onto the court at halftime during a New York Knicks game, no one knew what to expect. The fan thought he was going to upstage his older opponent, but it was he who was in for the surprise. It turns out the Harlem Globetrotters were in on the surprise, and that the "granny" actually had some pretty good moves.

Simmons' lack of a jump shot could spell trouble for his role in late-game situations with Butler leading the way.

YAHOO

The Blazers were the only loss for the Three at 3 last night, but that’s no reason to pass up on value like this on Wednesday. Facing Milwaukee tonight might explain Portland's lackluster performance against the Knicks on Tuesday. The Blazers likely have this game circled as an opportunity to show they’re legitimately one of the best teams in the league.

The Washington Wizards are set to add power forward, Okaro White to their NBA roster. Here are five things to know about the newest Wizards player. 1. White, 26, is a 6-foot-8, 205-pound power forward who played two seasons for the Miami Heat. In 41 total games, White averaged 2.9 points, 2.3 rebounds and shot 38.8 percent from the field.

There was something in the inflection of Al Horford's voice that underscored the complexity of the issues the Boston Celtics face early in the 2018-19 season. When Horford addressed reporters at Tuesday's previously unscheduled offday practice, his voice was softer, his answers shorter. On the heels of another maddening loss in Charlotte, it felt like Horford was as exasperated as the common fan about Boston's continued struggles.

The Boston Celtics have been a disappointment through the first month of the 2018-19 NBA season, but recent history suggests there's no reason to panic right now.
