go figure. i make a topic with stats and everything to create discussion and yet it's avoided like the plague. that's the last time i try to act like a serious poster here
Fight the good fight.
Just looking up league wide numbers over the last 6 games:
Pelicans have the 3rd best offense rating, 12 best defense rating, 6th best Net Rating, 3rd best AST/TO Ratio, best OREB %, 13th DREB %, 6th REB %, 8th eFG%, 8th TS%.
Small sample size is small and competition probably plays a role in this too, but those are some damn impressive numbers since Anderson has been back.
If we look at lineup data, the Final 5 are 132 ORating, 116 DRating in 51 minutes.
Anderson is at least a +6 with every major contributor on the team except Morrow (-14…weird). Most importantly he is +11 with Davis in 108 minutes.
The defensive numbers are higher than you would like with Anderson, but I'm not sure he deserves all the blame given the poor scheme and the fact that Aminu is the only regular with a DRating lower than league average.
