This season the NBA has listened to one of my many thoguht and has started to track a players +/- during the course of individual games. Due to my intense dislike of Brian Scalabrine, I am going to track the inept deadbeat in a weekly post called The Scalabrine Watch.
Celtics 101 Pacers 86: +8
Another Celtic beatdown means another game where Scalabrine gets to enter drop a couple of threes in watered down minutes and have his plus/minus suckle off the Big Three's tit.
Game Stats: 15 Minutes, 2-5, 9 Points, 1 Rebound, 0 Assists
Celtics 91 Nets 69: +3
Almost amazing how a person could have a plus/minus of only positive 3 when they are involved in a 22 point blow out.
Game Stats: 10 Minutes, 0-1, 0 Points, 2 Rebounds, 1 Assist
Celtics 92 Heat 91: -5
Apparently Scalabrine wasn't a good matchup or something against the Heat and thus only entered the game for a total of 6 minutes. But he must have left a good impression on some Heat player as he left with a -5.
Game Stats: 6 Minutes, 0-3, 0 Points, 1 Rebound, 0 Assists
Celtics 102 Orlando 104: -2
The Celtics were going to lose eventually and yesterday was that day. For the second consecutive game Scalabrine got limited minutes, and for the second consecutive game he produced just about nothing during those limited minutes. -2 on the +/- -2 on the scoreboard.
Game Stats: 6 Minutes, 0-1, 0 Points, 0 Rebounds, 1 Assist
Overall Week Performance: +4
Another week and another positive for Scalabrine. This week however, Scalabrine sprinkled in two negative outings amidst two Celtics close contests. Meaning if he was not on the floor during those games, there's a decent chance the Celtics do not split them. Well that was a vast overstatement of course, but regardless it's nice to see the Celtics decreasing his minutes to single digits.
Week Stats: 35 Minutes, 2-10, 9 Points, 4 Rebounds, 2 Assists
Overall Season Performance: +36
Scalabrine still has a much higher Season performance than I was expecting, but atleast its continually coming down to earth week after week. The man is bad at basketball and should not be making anywhere near what he does.
Season Stats:13 MPG, .320 FG%, 2.9 PPG, 2.1 RPG, 1 APG
