Wizards embarrased by Bobcats at home: Stats only

I didn't watch this one, and can't rewatch it since it was on NBATV.  I'm glad I missed it.  I'm certainly not glad to read about what some of the players said to the media after this loss.  In particular, Caron Butler and Gilbert Arenas' statements really bug me.  That it's those two guys is very problematic, because they're the only two players on the team that are significantly underperforming.  But that's for another post.

Stats only this time.

Four Factors (Bold=very good | Italics=very bad)

Team Pace Off Eff eFG% FT/FG OREB% TOr
Charlotte 87 105.7
48.7 23.7 24.4
87.4 41.6
15.6 18.4


Snap Reaction: Terrible offense across the board.  Hey, Gilbert, guess what?  We don't have all the scorers on this team that you think we have.  So be aggressive and score the damn ball already.  Make plays.  We can't survive if you don't.

Lineup Details, via Popcorn Machine

  • Highest individual plus/minus: Dominic McGuire (+7 in 13:54)
  • Lowest individual plus/minus: Gilbert Arenas (-19 in 32:54)
  • Best five-man unit: Randy Foye/Nick Young/Caron Butler/Dominic McGuire/Andray Blatche (+7 in garbage time at the end of the game)
  • Worst five-man unit: Gilbert Arenas/Nick Young/Caron Butler/Fabricio Oberto/JaVale McGee (-6 for a tiny stretch in the third quarter)

Snap Reaction: McGuire got all his positive production from that garbage-time lineup, so we can mostly discount it.  However, it would be nice to see him at least get DeShawn Stevenson's minutes.  Eight minutes for DeShawn was eight too many.
