Breakdown Jalen Duren

    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 24th with 909 total points (22.17 avg).
  • He is currently 1244 points behind the leader: Nikola Jokic
  • His average points in the past two weeks have increased by 15.5 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 71.93% from the field this month. Very impressive for a big man.
  • Assists per game numbers are alright for a center but nothing to brag about at 1.07 apg.
  • Rebounds per game numbers are pretty good for a center / power forward with 6.50 rpg this month.
  • Bonus Qualities

  • Played in 41 more games this year than last year.
  • At this point in the season his numbers compared to last years: PPG: +8.37, APG: +1.02, RPG: +8.83, MPG: +24.12 STLS: +0.63 BLKS: +0.73

  • Decline in numbers lately by 4 PPG.
