The Scalabrine Watch Week 14-15

Wednesday, February 13, 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 117 Heat 87: 15
How could you win the World Championship and within 2 years be so god damn bad? How?

Game Stats: 17 Minutes, 1-2, 1 Points, 5 Rebounds, 1 Assists

Celtics 96 Mavericks 90: -1
17 minutes without a single rebound is exactly what you want from your power forward.

Game Stats: 17 Minutes, 0-0, 0 Points, 0 Rebounds, 2 Assists

Celtics 113 Cavs 114: -3
The man is unstoppable. 5 points in a game must have commanded a constant double team.

Game Stats: 18 Minutes, 2-5, 5 Points, 1 Rebounds, 1 Assists

Celtics 111 Clippers 100: 1
Only 7 minutes? Doc must have seen better matchups this game.

Game Stats: 7 Minutes, 1-1, 3 Points, 1 Rebounds, 2 Assists

Celtics 88 Timberwolves 86: -1
19 minutes no points and yet he still finishes at only -1. Does he inspire teammates to pick up the slack when he's on the court. Is there a way to bottle this inspiration, and have a decent player on the court at the same time?

Game Stats: 19 Minutes, 0-3, 0 Points, 3 Rebounds, 0 Assists

Celtics 98 Spurs 90: 3
Airballs, travels, horrible passes. Every time you saw Scals on the court he was doing something embarrassing. Yet a positive 3. Amazing.

Game Stats: 16 Minutes, 1-5, 2 Points, 4 Rebounds, 0 Assists

Celtics 104 Pacers 97: 6
Of course he finishes of the scoring period with a solid +/-. But of course he only mildly contributed to the actual game.

Game Stats: 16 Minutes, 1-3, 3 Points, 2 Rebounds, 2 Assists

Overall Week Performance: +20
7 games and Scals averaged just over 2 points per contest in over 15 minutes per game. One basket per 15 minutes on the court and yet he finishes at +20. Unreal.

Weeks Stats: 110 Minutes, 6-9, 15 Points, 16 Rebounds, 8 Assists

Overall Season Performance: +37
And after a ridiculous week, led by a ridiculous +/- against Miami, Scals more than doubles his +/- seasonal total and looks pretty good for the remainder of the season in staying above 0.

Season Stats:10:35 MPG, .316 FG%, 1.9 PPG, 1.5 RPG, 0.8 APG
