Dead Ball Efficiency

Remember when Nate was being lauded by national media as being fantastic out of timeouts and in crunch time and in set plays?  If not I'll direct you here Article from the WSJ.  Well In the 2008-2009 Nate took the dead ball efficiency to even higher levels.  In the 2008-2009 Season the Blazers were # 6 in the NBA in FG% out of timeouts with a 44.8% FG percentage and an aFG% of 49.2   Also they were #3 in the NBA in efficiency in inbound plays from the endline at 45.2% and an aFG% of 49.7%.

 

So where do we currently stand?  As Ben has been pointing out, the team just doesn't seem to be effective in their offensive schemes. Dead ball situations are certainly not immune to this phenomenon. Thus far in the 2009-2010 season the Blazers are #29 in the NBA out of timeouts at 37.7% and an aFG of 40.0%    The end line has not been quite as dramatic a decline going from #3 to #12 at a current fg% of 38.8 and an aFG% of 40.8.

 

2008   #6  After Timeout  44.8%        #3 Out of Bounds End Line  45.2%

2009   #29 After Timeout 37.7%        #12 Out of Bounds End Line 38.8%

 

Let the dialog commence.
