    Raps did a great job setting those screens for open looks.

    DeRozan did a great job hitting the shots too.

    Since January 5th - DeRozan's awakening - he has taken more 16-24 shots than anyone else in the league (192). Earlier in the season he was hitting about 39% of these shots. Since January 5th he is hitting 43.8% of them - 33rd in the league among players with at least 50 attempts.
    Yeah, he's got a lot of confidence in his jump shot which is a good thing as long as his shot drops (no point in arguing that he shouldn't take long two's anymore..that's sort of obvious). I'm just pointing out that his strength lies in taking that open shot as opposed to trying to create space for himself. I could have lived with him taking that long two in Chicago, if it was an open shot, but instead it was create for yourself scenario which he's poor at.

    I'm not arguing anything at all here, btw, and I agree with your points.

    I missed yesterday's game, but looking at the stat line and reading about it, it seems to be one of Demar's best performances.

    I was re-watching the Washington game this weekend and Demar seems to be more engaged defensively right now. The playoff atmosphere might be bringing out the best in the other aspects of his game.

    Would like to know how many time DD is getting to the FT line over that same span. That's huge. And especially when you're trying to mount a comeback in the 4th quarter - you need to be able to score with the clock stopped. All of the winning teams have those types of 'closers', who really piss you off (along with the refs) when you're on the losing side.

    8.9 attempts per game since January 5th

    2.7 attempts per 4th quarter since January 5th


    When running stats from January 5th surprising he is only shooting 38% in 4th quarter.

    Surprising as in you are expecting bad news but weren't expecting it to be THAT bad.

    I wonder how much impact those free throws have (for DD and other Raptors players) outside of the FT points themselves, as in:
    1. shots when opponents are in FT bonus time
    2. opponents changing their defensive play because they are approaching or are in foul trouble
    3. Raps players deciding to get aggressive because their defensive opponent is in foul trouble

    LOL did I actually just hear that from Leo? 1:56 - "remember when (Curry) came into the league, he was such a poor shooter."

    3 years at Davidson - 41% 3pt

    Not sure if this was posted:

    Most points per pick-and-roll possession, ball-handler
    Ball-handler Poss. Team PTS PTS/Poss. Top Partner Poss. Team PTS PTS/Poss.
    Goran Dragic 1,172 1,361 1.16 Channing Frye 392 510 1.30
    DeMar DeRozan 690 793 1.15 Amir Johnson 261 303 1.16
    Kevin Durant 732 813 1.11 Serge Ibaka 284 286 1.01
    Jeremy Lin 528 586 1.11 Dwight Howard 166 181 1.09
    LeBron James 659 729 1.11 Chris Bosh 188 225 1.20
    Damian Lillard 1,121 1,238 1.10 LaMarcus Aldridge 441 526 1.19
    Dwyane Wade 469 516 1.10 Chris Bosh 155 144 0.93
    Jrue Holiday 783 859 1.10 Anthony Davis 245 256 1.04
    Monta Ellis 1,451 1,583 1.09 Dirk Nowitzki 500 554 1.11
    George Hill 619 672 1.09 David West 258 279 1.08

    Among 46 starting point guards and other perimeter players in the top 25 in usage rate.
    Top partner = Player with whom heís run the most pick-and-rolls.

    DeRozanís numbers seem a little fluky. Heís shot just 41 percent out of pick-and-rolls, has recorded an assist on just 5.8 percent those 690 possessions (the fourth lowest rate of the group), and averages less than one secondary assist (where his pass directly leads to somebody elseís assist) per game. But he has drawn fouls on 9.4 percent of his pick-and-roll possessions, a rate on par with that of LeBron James.

    More importantly, is Leo Rautins the most orange broadcaster in sports (non natural, I know this because his son is as pale as pale gets) ? Buck Martinez is pretty orange but I think that's natural, could be wrong though

    The shot with 50 seconds left? Doesn't he say "oh yes!" ?

    grass is getting greener. still want him to be able to finish at the rim at an above average level though, regardless of whether he draws a foul or not.

    Default Derozan: My opinion has changed

    Quote Apollo wrote: View Post
    Based on what you seen from DeRozan so far this season has your opinion of him changed at all compared to when he was drafted? Is he exceeding your expectations, meeting your expectations or not meeting your expectations in any area? Please discuss.
    Even 4 months ago, you could probably find a post that I wrote saying that Derozan would be a good bench player, or a good 3rd scoring option, but we could never have him as a 1st or 2nd option. (I've also said he sucks and we should trade him, but enough about that).

    Not only is he a legit 1st or 2nd option now, but he can pass. In a million years, I never would have thought that he would do the work necessary (especially study the film) to develop his assist totals to 4-5 per game. He court vision has improved from game to game. I can remember games at the beginning of the year where he wouldn't make the passes he makes now.

    I STILL think that we need a guy who can create off the dribble to really be considered an elite team. I STILL prefer Lowry to have the ball at the end of the game, and he STILL takes too many long 2's. I also think Ross can be a much better overall player long term.

    BUT I think that it really is a special to have a guy on your team who is willing to work this hard, and to make real strides in many areas of his game that you can see as a fan. He was basically crap last year, and to become an All Star this year, to average 25 ppg last month sets an example for everyone on his team, and really anyone who wants to see what hard work can do for you.

    Finally, I think he's well worth the "BS" contract we signed him to.

    Again, I don't LOVE his game, but he's a character guy, and represents what our city is about. He has earned my respect, and I feel good about him as our starting 2 guard.
