Why? Did he have a setback?

He didn't oil his robot legs. Polls right around what I was going to guess, between 14 and 16 or so.

18.2 in 14 attempts in games he starts.

I'll say he'll start at 10 or so PPG for a while then start trending toward 18 or so. Assuming he plays at all.

I think 16ppg is right around where he'll end up when it's all said and done.

I'm curious to see how many people say 20pts+, since we're told that expectations need to be knocked down.

I hope he is back to form quickly. I see him getting back above 10ppg quickly this time thanks to Paul George opening up the game for him. Overall I wouldn't mind seeing Danny back to 19-20ppg all while Paul George doesn't go down at all, in fact it may improve him to have the floor spread thanks to the compliment of a shooter like DG that you have to pay attention to. I hope I'm right! I'm freakin excited to see how it all plays out.

DG needs 15 shots probably to get 19-20ppg. Somebody has to go down.

Green, Young, some of West's extra shots. There are a lot of shots and points available in our offense.

I say that Danny averages 12-14 PPG.

It could still work. I've seen numerous games where Bosh scores 20 Wade 25 and Lebron 32 (just throwing numbers) I don't see why West cant score 18 George score 20 and Granger score 18 like that consistently with good ball movement and the floor more spread out. I know there are a lot of factors out there that make a difference but I'm just saying. A fan can dream can't he?!?!?! :D

No thank you! Make that Roy's shots and you've got a deal. If we can get Roy to miss 6 less shots per game it's a positive thing, even if that just means he shoots 6 less times per game.

Roy is taking the exact same amount of that he took last season. 10.3 FGA per game. Also, he is still hitting his hook shot on a respectable rate (53.3%) so it's not like the plays that are drawn to him are wasted (not that we draw a lot of plays for him as only 52% of his baskets are assisted). He's just missing a lot of tip shots and lay-ups he should normally make as I explained in another post of mine.

David West is averaging 14.6 FGA so far this season. He averaged 10.8 FGA last season. He is 100% healthy now so it's logical that he averages more FGA than last year. But this jump is not only due to him being healthy. It's also due to us lacking scoring options. The daunted "West isos" as vnzla would say. We were indeed abusing this play. We went to West any time we struggled to score.

With Danny back, we could go to him when we struggled to score.

We really have no idea if he'll be 100% by the end of the season. I'll go out on a limb and say 19.2 leading the team in ppg with PG and West both closing in.

Green/Young/MiscWing is about 10 shots a game.

That's enough for 12 PPG, imo.

I think it would get 12.5-13, but he'll take more shots than that.

15 or 16.

He could also take away some shots from DJ and OJ. I don't think that he will take more than 14-15 shots and there are 14-15 shots available in our team.

You figure Young, Green and Johnson average a combined 8.7 ppg on a combined 9 shots per game only shooting roughly 36% ( 106 of 307 combined). Thats 9 shots a game Danny will take add a few other shots taken from others easy to see him getting 13-15 looks a night.

Danny hits 6 or 7 of those 15 a couple of which are 3's , and 2 or3 ft's a night there is 16 to 18 ppg so I think he'll start slow but built up to the playoffs ( assuming he is healthy).

OJ was the misc wing I couldn't remember.

If he takes 15 shots then he'll get 18-20 points. Once he gets his conditioning anyway.

Sam Young: 3.1 PPG, 3.3 FGA, 37 FG%, 40 /108

Gerald Green: 6.6 PPG, 7 FGA, 34.5 FG%, 106 / 307

Orlando Johnson: 3.1 PPG, 2.5 FGA, 40.4 FG%, 23 / 57

If we were to combine those 3: 12.8 PPG, 12.8 FGA, 169 / 472 (35.8 FG%)

That's what our 3 wings are giving us if we combine them.

They don't play in the same games though, so 12.8ppg is more points than we scored.

It depends a lot, on what team he is playing for. ;)

The 8.7 ppg was their combined points divided by 53 games. Yeah I miss copied total fga/fgm but 36% was the right shooting pct as was the 9 shot attemps per game.

mattie

10 to 12 points is what I say.

Come playoff time? I think he'll average 18-20. By then he should be starting full time, and once he's playing off of Paul George, I think his efficiency will go up so much that he'll throw up roughly 19. It's a lot easier when everyone is focused on PG and West.

That's true. I was just trying to gauge how many shots they use up on average :-p

If you're talking about the backup SF position individually then you're prolly right.
