Delfino’s Masterpiece vs. Jennings’ Disasterpiece

You want a stark comparison of Winning Basketball vs. Losing Basketball?  I’ve got one for you.

I just finished doing the reverse boxscore MWS48 for the Bucks last game versus the Wizards.  Carlos Delfino produced an ungodly raw Marginal Win Score of +20.5.  Brandon Jennings produced a pretty bad raw Marginal Win Score of -8.0.  Lets look at how each did put his piece together.

Delfino’s stat line is a thing of beauty.  He produced 13 points in exchange for only 9 possessions.  That’s +4.0.  Then he was all over the glass, getting the basketball for the Bucks 11 times.  That’s +11.0.  Then he helped out on 3 scores.  That’s +1.5.  And he only lost the basketball once, for a grand total of +15.5. 

Then you look at the Wizards who played small forward opposite Delfino.  They were completely inefficient, producing a combined Win Score of -4.5 while Delfino was on the court.  We add that to his total to get his spectacular (in terms of helping the Bucks win) game — a raw Marginal Win Score of +20.0.

Now Jennings.  He produced one of the ugliest stat lines in recent memory.  Jennings used up 12 Bucks possessions trying to score the basketball, but produced only 5 points.  That’s like giving your roommate $40.00 to go on a beer run and he comes back with one shorty.

Now, he did get on the boards, producing 6 rebounds, he got a couple of steals, and he had 5 assists.  He’s good in these areas, but not good enough to make up for his horrible shooting.  (the essence of a few posts back)

The real killer, though, was his ridiculous 6 turnovers.  Ugh.  He had more turnovers than assists!  All in all, Jennings was a sickly -4.0 Win Score.

Then, Washington’s point guards had an almost dead average production night against him, producing a +4.0.  Put it together and Jennings had a terrible night, producing a (-8.0) raw Marginal Win Score in 31 minutes of action.

The bottom line is one guy really helped out the Bucks cause, and one guy kinda killed them.

    I’m getting really sick of Brandon’s shooting, he shoots under 40% every night practically. And I have the feeling that it’s not going to end until Skiles just puts his ass on the bench.

    Jennings just said he sucked and would stop shooting on twitter today. hahaha
