Champion versus Contender(Pretender?)

I thought I would compare the Blazer Championship team to our current team. Comments follow the stats.

Category | 76-77 13-14

-------------------------------

FGA | 7537 7006

FGM | 3623 3271

FG% | .481 .467

FT | 1917 1379

DRB | 2703 2629

PTS/G | 111.7 97

First, I used 2 point field goals as the basis of the analysis.

On the basis of this comparison, the current team needs to improve it's shooting, needs to drive to the basket more (to get more free throws), needs to take more shots, needs to average slightly more than one defensive rebound more per game.

Also interesting is comparing shooting % (again 2pt %) of Lillard and Aldridge to Hollins and Lucas:

Lillard .397

Hollins .432

Aldridge .455

Lucas .466

I think it is easy to see what a good passing center, who can score consistently, can do for other players.

Unless the blazer's overall shooting doesn't improve, it doesn't seem likely the team will make the playoffs in spite of the great start.
