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 118 Nuggets 124: DNP
Celtics 117 Warriors 119: DNP
Celtics 77 Suns 85: DNP
Celtics 112 Blazers 102: DNP
Celtics 104 Clippers 76: DNP
Celtics 92 Cavs 87: DNP
Celtics 108 Bobcats 100: DNP
Celtics 98 Hawks 88: DNP
Celtics 90 Pistons 78: DNP
Celtics 116 Bulls 93: -3
The long awaited return of Scalabrine ended with a negative +/- but one buried three. I'm certain he played a crucial role in their 23 point victory.
Game Stats: 8 Minutes, 1-2, 3 Points, 1 Rebound, 0 Assists
Celtics 119 Grizzlies 89: -6

Game Stats: 6 Minutes, 0-0, 0 Points, 1 Rebound, 0 Assists
Celtics 100 76ers 86: DNP
Overall Period Performance: -9

Weeks Stats: 14 Minutes, 1-2, 3 Points, 1 Rebound, 0 Assists
Overall Season Performance: +23
Oh the DNPs that shall come in the future for Scalabrine. When will he actually be used other than out of reach blowouts? Will he even get enough playing time to sink his +/- to par?
