The Scalabrine Watch: The Unstoppable (Except for Concussions) January Scalabrine

Friday, February 06, 2009

It's the second season of the Scalabrine Watch which is meant to point out just how terrible he is as a basketball player. It shall track both his typical numbers as well as his +/- which the signifies the total number of points the Celtics lose while he is on the court.

The Scals was inserted into the starting lineup after Perk got injured and in the month of January Scals was "The Beacon of Energy". The only thing that could stop his rampant pace? Concussions.

January Sum Up: +99

The month of January got off to a slow start for Scals. In the first 5 games he only racked up 36 minutes of PT and he garnered a middle of the road +/-. You know the numbers we expect from Scals, a +/- in the single digits for each game cause he doesn't play enough. Than Perkins got injured, Scals was inserted in the starting line up and and the +/- was on sky rocket patrol.

In the next 6 games, Scals played at least 22 minutes. In four of these 6 games Scals put up a +/- over 15. He even scored double digit points in two of these games. Somehow in the 6 games he never managed to pick up more than 4 rebonds, proving he does still suck, but the +/- were through the roof.

Overall November Performance: 86

Damn you January. Scalabrine's +99 in January leaves him at +86 for the season. You know how hard it's going to be to get back to par from +86? Nearly impossible especially if his minutes do not drastically increase when he finally comes back from the concussions.

January Totals: 223 Minutes, 63 Points, 22-56 FG, 9-28 3s, 10-10 FTs, 23 Rebounds, 8 Assists, 5 Turnovers, 3 Steals, 7 Blocks, 33 Fouls

January Averages: 17 Minutes, 4.85 Points, 1.7-4 FG, 1-2.2 3s, 0.8-0.8 FTs, 1.77 Rebounds, .36Assists, .4 Turnovers, .2 Steals, .5 Blocks, 2.5 Fouls
