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 113 76ers 103: -3
Scals got in for a whopping 2 minutes against the 76ers early in the week, to which he contributed absolutely no statistic. Not a point, not a rebound, Not a foul not a turnover, nothing. Zeros across the board.
Game Stats: 2 Minutes, 0-0, 0 Points, 0 Rebounds, 0 Assists
Celtics 112 Nets 84: -4
The Celtics had this one in the bag going into the 4th with a 36 point lead. Thus Scals and the rest of the bench got a lot of burn in the 4th. The bench was pointlessly outscored by 8 points to seal a 28 point victory.
Game Stats: 10 Minutes, 1-3, 5 Points, 0 Rebounds, 1 Assist, 1 Block
Celtics 91 Bulls 81: DNP
Scals first Coach's DNP of the season. The Energy Beacon is down for a night and Doc apparently is shifting his trust to the younger guys on the bench.
Game Stats: Coach's DNP
Overall Week Performance: -7
The first negative week of the season, I'm shocked it took 6 weeks for the negative to occur but I would expect a few more coming the remainer of the season as Scals seems to only be getting burn when the game is all but over and KG, Pierce and Allen are resting on the bench.
Week Stats: 35 Minutes, 1-3, 5 Points, 0 Rebounds, 1 Assist, 1 Block
Overall Season Performance: +37
Scals first negative week of brought the +/- back down to the thirties but with his vastly decreasing pt it will be amazing if he struggles enough to ever go back to par for the course.
Season Stats:11 MPG, .349 FG%, 2.5 PPG, 1.7 RPG, 0.9 APG
