Hollinger analyzes Roy's fourth quarter performance and has the following mindblowing statement to make about it on ESPN (from Truehoop):
With essentially one good quarter, Brandon Roy went from one of the lowest ranked players in the NBA, according to PER, to top 20. John Hollinger (Insider): "On Saturday I tweeted Roy's player efficiency rating for the final 12:45, but upon review I actually shortchanged him a bit. His mark for that stretch was an incomprehensible 89.68, or roughly triple what a typical MVP winner might post. Per 40 minutes he averaged 67 points, 16 assists and no turnovers. In a nutshell, then, this wasn't just the best quarter of Roy's career; this was the best quarter of just about anybody's career."
