Zach Lowe on Brandon Jennigns
(Posted on 2/8/13 at 2:48 pm)
Another great read from Lowe. This is on the camera system installed in half the arenas by STATS LLC. Interesting look at data that no one has ever kept track of.
He does lots of takes on different players but the only one that relates to NO is what he says about possible target Jennings.
For reference, according to Lowe
quote: teams average just about one point per possession overall
quote: Brandon Jennings, alleged seeker of a max deal, continues to rank only so-so by these sorts of metrics, and since the Bucks are a camera team, you can bet they know this. Jennings has recorded a ho-hum 5.8 drives per game, and the Bucks have scored just 1.06 points per possession on trips when Jennings does drive — one of the lowest numbers in the sample. Monta Ellis is both more prolific (about 8.0 drives per game) and a more efficient engine of team scoring (1.30 points per possession) when he does drive.
