Blazer Players Ranks Amongst NBAs Top 40

A Quick Look At Player Stats


Top 40 players looked at. This wont be adjusted for any teams that played tonight(12/4) so by the time I post this, some of these stats will have changed. Its just for reference, something to give you an idea of where our players ranked amongst the top 40 players in each category through our first 18 games. I used ESPNs stat page. Other teams players listed for comparison. Notes are just some things that came to mind. Check it out. There are some surprises and some familiar names on this list, some ex-Blazers. We rank pretty well in some categories, and not surprisingly, poorly in others. If yall like it enough, I will do another at the half way point of the season. Thanks for checking it out and lets talk about it below.

Dames is #2 scoring PG in the NBA behind only Westbrook.

only team with 3 players in the top ten for 3s made!

1. Nico Batum - 125

4. Damian Lillard - 113

minutes. I wonder if anybody can find out when is the last time this happened? I

wonder how long they can continue this output.
