REBOUNDING

0.4 contested rebs

 

2.5rpg

2.0 uncontested rebs

0.5 contested rebs

2.4rpg

2.0 uncontested rebs

0.4 contested rebs

Comments: It’s VERY close, Lou only averaged .1 more contested rebounds but still higher, he has the edge once again.

PLAYMAKING

Eric Gordon Lou Williams Fred VanVleet
2.2 apg

4.1 potential apg

1.18 ast/tov ratio

24.4% usage rate

40.2 touches

2.5 secs per touch

 

5.3 apg

8.4 potential apg

1.78 ast/tov ratio

29.2% usage rate

65.5 touches per game

3.98 secs per touch

3.2 apg

6.4 potential apg

3.28 ast/tov ratio

19.4% usage rate

39.9 touches per game

4.39 secs per touch

Thoughts: I would say Fred is the better playmaker if he played more mins or had a bigger role like Lou does, having said that Eric is no playmaker especially playing with Harden and Chris Paul so yet again Lou Williams wins another category.

TOR 99.9 DRTG on court

TOR 105.5 DRTG on bench

 

19-10 when shooting 35% or worse

 

4-2 without Fred

Thoughts: As you can see the Rockets were nearly 13-0 without Eric, had a winning record despite him having an off night. The Raptors also had a winning record without Fred and 19-10 is a pretty legit record with your sixth man struggling to shoot.

CLUTCH (last 5 mins game within 5)

Eric Gordon Lou Williams Fred VanVleet-109

6/17 on 3s = 35%

Thoughts: Yes Eric Gordon and Fred didn’t get as many opportunities to make clutch buckets being the 3rd option we can’t fault Lou for that. Again, it is quite clear Lou won this category.

Conclusion

I don’t know about you but I think it’s quite clear who should win the award and that is Lou Williams who many thought shoulda been an all star since Jimmy Butler chose to sit out the ASG for rest, NOBODY said Fred or Eric should have made it.

  1. This year Lou Williams probably has it wrapped up. Hopefully Van Fleet gets more minutes next year so we can see his numbers with a higher usage percentage.
