Well, it pretty much looks like the same schedule, so the same results could be expected. Well, 2-6 is almost as bad as 1-7.
We had previously seen improvement in our offense. Question is, does it continue?
|Assist Per Game||17.625||17.625|
|Possessions Per Game||87.424||89.511|
Of the 9 measures, 7 of them were improvements over last year, one was worse (thanks Brandon), and the other was a tie. And some are quite decent improvements. We are scoring 3.75 points more, allowing 4.125 points less, are getting more than 2 extra possessions a game, and shooting better. I'd call that improvement.
|Blocks Per Game||3.5||6.625|
|Steals Per Game||5.875||6.5|
|Opponent Offensive Rebounds||9.00||13.25|
Well, of the 6 categories, 5 of them were improvements and only one was in the negative. Again, as with offense, there were major improvements though. Almost doubled the number of blocks a game, cut more than 6% off OPP FG% and over 11.5% on OPP 3P%. That's highly encouraging.
So, of 15 categories, we had 12 positive, 2 negative, and one a tie. When you take into account the amount of each improvement with how many categories were improvements, you'd think the Pistons did much better than 1-7 in the same stretch last year. But they didn't. So while I'm encouraged by the improvement, we didn't see it where we thought we would. Wait, I think I heard that said somewhere before. Comparatively, we were 4-20 at this time last year, this time we're 7-17, so that's encouraging.
Sorry for this one being late. Holidays took up most of my time. I'm going to update the other posts with the new color scheme and get the next 8 up as well. Thanks for reading.
