After playing 13% of his minutes at C last year, Ibaka's played 100% of his mins there this season.
Last year: 1.4 screen ast (100th in NBA), 3.7 OREB% (87th), 3.9 3PA/1.6 FTA, 4.6 pts in the paint.
This year: 4.0 screen ast (8th), 10.4 OREB% (11th), 2.0 3PA/5.7 FTA, 7.3 PITP.
Not a bad PG matchup in Toronto tonight...
Kyle Lowry: 3 games, 70 points (10th in NBA), 61% FG, 12-20 3P (3rd in 3PM), 26 ast (2nd), 4 drawn charges (tied 1st).
Kemba Walker: 3 games, 106 points (1st), 49% FG, 19-38 3P (1st in 3PM), 16 ast (20th), 4 drawn charges (tied 1st).
Delon Wright went through shoot around today but will not play tonight. As for Kawhi, there is no plan to rest him in all back to backs. But they will be cautious, especially in scenarios like this - four games in six nights.
I just voted. Hopefully all of you get out and do the same at some point today... Wherever you live.
I declare the Raptors, Nuggets and Pelicans the winners of week 1.
