I wrote a while back about a key stat for Greg will be mean time between fouls. At the time, he was averaging a scant 4 mins 9 seconds between fouls, limiting him to a max of ~24 mins per game. Increasing the mean time between fouls by even a single minute would increase his max court time to ~30 mins. In this post, I wanted to see exactly how Greg is performing when he does manage to play more than 25 mins.
Through the first 16 games of the year, Greg has played 25+ minutes seven times, including four of the past eight. In those seven games, Greg has averaged:
12.71 pts 10.29 reb 2.43 blocks 2.57 turnovers 3.86 fouls
I think any Blazer fan would sign up for those numbers. His turnover total is inflated by the seven he committed in the first game. His turnover average in the other six games is only 1.57.
Most importantly, his average minutes per game has increased from ~23 in the first eight games, to ~26 in the last eight. His fouls have gone from an average of 4.375 in the first eight to 3.625 in the last eight.
It's fun to watch his growth happen so clearly and undeniably.
