@jayballer67 Stats don’t tell the whole story. Also, he’s 4th in FG% of rotation players :
- Chris Teahan G
- Mitch Lightfoot F
- Latrell Jossell G
- Tristan Enaruna G
- Gethro Muscadin F
- Jalen Wilson F
- David McCormack F
Your center is supposed to have the highest FG% on the team. Anyone who only shoots 2’s needs to have a high FG%, especially when their usage is absurdly high. That’s what we’ve been saying all season; that doesn’t change.
He has been historically bad this season on offense up until the last few games, and bad on defense as well. However, he was great in the last 10 minutes of yesterday’s game. His stat line of 24/12/3 was legit. He carried us on offense, and he played good defense down the stretch. He squared up his body when he shot his baby hook, he didn’t settle for bad shots, his 3 assists meant he wasn’t a black hole when we passed it in. Rim protection was nice. He played within the flow.
To expound on your point, if he can build on this, and be THIS Dave every game, he can be a big part of our success, and his cumulative stats by season’s end could be much better.
