Breakdown Elfrid Payton

    Overview

  • Experts rank this player at 63rd among PG's. Based on his stats from the past 30 days, he is currently ranked 32nd with 709 total points (22.16 avg).
  • He is currently 937 points behind the leader: Luka Doncic
  • He is doing a lot better than most people thought he would. Can he keep this up or is it a fluke?
  • His average points in the past two weeks have increased by 2.1 PPG.
  • Performance Stats

  • Shooting 46.98% from the field this month. Very good.
  • Shooting 21.05% from beyond the arc this month. I'd love to play against him in a game of 'HORSE'.
  • He is ranked 82nd this month in assist to turnover ratio with 2.00.
  • Bad point guard averaging only 2.80 apg this month.
  • Rebounds per game are at 3.07 for the month.
  • Bonus Qualities

  • Played in 8 less games this year than last year.
  • At this point in the season his numbers compared to last years: PPG: +2.91, APG: -3.41, RPG: -0.83, MPG: +0.19 STLS: --1.04 BLKS: --0.21
Breakdown DeMarcus Cousins

    Overview

  • Experts don't even rank him among C's. Either he is injured or is just plain bad. Based on his stats from the past 30 days, he is currently ranked 25th with 601 total points (24.04 avg).
  • He is currently 1259 points behind the leader: Nikola Jokic
  • His average points in the past two weeks have increased by 18 PPG. That is great, but how long can he perform at this level? If you don't have the confidence he can keep it up, then trade him for a sure thing.
  • Performance Stats

  • Shooting 42.27% from the field this month. Not very good for a big man.
  • Shooting 37.50% from beyond the arc this month. Not horrible, but not too good either.
  • Assists per game numbers are alright for a center but nothing to brag about at 1.91 apg.
  • Rebounds per game numbers are pretty good for a center / power forward with 7.45 rpg this month.
  • Bonus Qualities

  • Played in 25 more games this year than last year.
  • At this point in the season his numbers compared to last years: PPG: +9.64, APG: +2.4, RPG: +7.64, MPG: +19.68 STLS: +0.84 BLKS: +0.72
