Breakdown Jamal Murray

    Overview

  • Experts don't even rank him among PG's. Either he is injured or is just plain bad. Based on his stats from the past 30 days, he is currently ranked 16th with 1479 total points (34.40 avg).
  • He is currently 1089 points behind the leader: Luka Doncic
  • His average points in the past two weeks have increased by 11.1 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 48.84% from the field this month. Very impressive.
  • Shooting 43.40% from beyond the arc this month. Pretty damn good.
  • He is ranked 36th this month in assist to turnover ratio with 2.76.
  • Good point guard that is one of the better ones in the league with 6.07 apg this month.
  • Rebounds per game numbers are pretty good for a guard with 4.47 rpg this month.
  • Bonus Qualities

  • Played in 14 less games this year than last year.
  • At this point in the season his numbers compared to last years: PPG: +20.42, APG: +5.72, RPG: +4.19, MPG: +32.3 STLS: +0.98 BLKS: +0.21
Breakdown Jalen Smith

    Overview

  • He is currently 1385 points behind the leader: Julius Randle
  • His average points in the past two weeks have dipped quite a bit at 9.9.
  • Performance Stats

  • Shooting 48.94% from the field this month.
  • Shooting 26.67% from beyond the arc this month. I'd love to play against him in a game of 'HORSE'.

  • Rebounds per game numbers are bad for a center / power forward at 2.43 rpg this month.
