Things are looking up for the Pels. Getting healthy. New guys are playing better. The coaches have said frick it with our GM and going with what works. Small ball doing work.

He had a great December after a mediocre November, but I still he has great room of improvement. I think he'll have a great January. So glad to see him getting more playing time too.

It will be interesting to see how much upside he has, and if he can improve attacking the basket and finishing at the rim. All Pels need him to do is turn into JJ Reddick. If that is his ceiling, he will have a long a productive career.

10 points 3 boards, one assist and one turnover. no blocks, no steals. meh.

if you increase those numbers based on 30 minutes
14 points, 4 boards. 2 assists, 2 turnovers. no steals, no blocks.

nothing to write home about yet.

So shooting 50% from 3 is nothing to write home about

Huh. You learn something new everyday

Exactly. I'm not an advanced stats guy but I would imagine with those percentages and those point averages that his usage is pretty low.

for a rookie? thats pretty much what klay did in year 2 in 36 minutes.

PPG isnt going to be very high when he's a 3-4th option

What I find interesting is that if you go search for "Jamal Murray" it has been about 16 days since anyone has mentioned him.

Someone may want to check in on Toula and some of those guys to see if they are alright. For some reason there seems to be this strange correlation between Buddy's improvement and the abscence of posters that used to spend an excessive amount of time denouncing him.
