The Scalabrine Watch Weeks 8-10

Monday, January 07, 2008

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 85 Pistons 87: DNP

Celtics 107 Bulls 82: 1

The C's blew the doors off the Bulls helping to solidify Skiles demise and getting Scals the most minutes he would see during the holiday season.

Game Stats: 7 Minutes, 0-2, 0 Points, 1 Rebound, 2 Assists

Celtics 103 Magic 91: DNP

Celtics 89 Kings 69: +14

The C's with another blowout victory in which Scals gets some time on the court. Despite not scoring a point and only taking one shot during his 6 minutes on the court he had a solid +/- of 14 which helped carry his holiday season.

Game Stats: 6 Minutes, 0-1, 0 Points, 3 Rebounds, 1 Assists

Celtics 104 Sonics 96: -2

1 minute is overstating his playing time for the game. He really was only in for seconds and never eclipsed the minute mark.

Game Stats: 1 Minutes, 0-0, 0 Points, 0 Rebounds, 0 Assists

Celtics 104 Jazz 98: 0

Same situation as the previous game. He basically just got in in the closing seconds and had no impact on the game whatsoever.

Game Stats: 1 Minutes, 0-0, 0 Points, 0 Rebounds, 0 Assists

Celtics 110 Lakers 91: -10

Scals got a few minutes against the Lakers who had already changed out of their short shorts. During his time the Lakers made a meaningless 10 point come back. Nothing of note really for Scals, but the -10 countered most of his Kings beneficial +/-.

Game Stats: 4 Minutes, 0-2, 0 Points, 1 Rebound, 0 Assists

Celtics 97 Rockets 93: DNP

Celtics 100 Grizz 96: DNP

Celtics 92 Pistons 85: DNP

Overall Week Performance: +3
Despite playing only scrub minutes and getting a boatload of DNPs, Scals managed to have a 3 week plus minus of positive 3. All thanks to the Sacramento Kings.

Weeks Stats: 19 Minutes, 0-3, 0 Points, 5 Rebounds, 3 Assists

Overall Season Performance: +26
With Scals incredibly declining minutes including the three consecutive DNPs it will be interesting to see if the goofy white man will get any significant minutes the remainder of the season. Could their be an elder free agent out there that just might boot Scals off the active roster completely?

Season Stats:9 MPG, .308 FG%, 1.9 PPG, 1.4 RPG, 0.8 APG
