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 dislike of Brian Scalabrine, I am going to track he's performance in a weekly post called The Scalabrine Watch. 3 Million a year for what?
Celtics 100 Trailblazers 90: DNP
Celtics 116 76ers 89: 2
Scals +2 performance in this blowout of the 76ers directly reflects the two free throws he made. Good for Scals, without those 2 points the Celtics would have been hard pressed to win.
Game Stats: 5 Minutes, 0-0, 2 Points, 0 Rebounds, 0 Assists
Celtics 109 Knicks 93: -8
MLK day was not too kind to Scals +/-. Scals once again sank his two free throws and even added a rebound and an assist however while on the court the Cs were outscored by 8 points.
Game Stats: 5 Minutes, 0-0, 2 Points, 1 Rebound, 1 Assist
Overall Week Performance: -6
A 100% completely shotless week for Scals. Nice to see that in three games Doc put the hammer down and said no shooting for you unless you get fouled in the process. So Scals went 4-4 from the free throw line in 10 minutes of PT and once again decreased his seasonal +/-.
Weeks Stats: 10 Minutes, 0-0, 4 Points, 1 Rebound, 1 Assist
Overall Season Performance: +13
Scals is for the most receiving only scrub time in the past month and this is directly affecting his overall +/-. At the pace he's been going on he could be in the negative zone in a matter of weeks.
Season Stats:9 MPG, .316 FG%, 1.9 PPG, 1.2 RPG, 0.8 APG
