Breakdown Kawhi Leonard

    Overview

  • Experts don't even rank him among SF'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 1130 total points (37.67 avg).
  • He is currently 987 points behind the leader: LeBron James
  • 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 51.92% from the field this month. Very impressive.
  • Shooting 43.28% from beyond the arc this month. Pretty damn good.
  • Assists per game numbers are decent for a small forward with 3.60 apg this month.
  • Rebounds per game numbers are good for a small forward with 5.80 rpg this month.
  • Bonus Qualities

  • Played in 29 less games this year than last year.
  • At this point in the season his numbers compared to last years: PPG: +22.03, APG: +3.97, RPG: +6.23, MPG: +31.67 STLS: +1.4 BLKS: +0.5
