This is from C's blog and the numbers don't reflect the last 2 contests, which would bring the majority of those numbers down.
Boston is allowing 6.1 more points per 100 possessions when Ojeleye is on the floor.
Opponents are actually shooting 2.0 percent better than expected on shots that Ojeleye contests.
Ojeleye is averaging just 0.5 deflections, 0.3 steals, and 0.0 blocks per game. Such statistics aren’t perfect measurements, but they do tend to reflect a certain level of activity, particularly as a help defender.
What is of greater concern are Ojeleye’s offensive struggles. He’s shot the ball poorly, posting meager .325/.286/.632 splits. Boston’s offense has cratered in his minutes, scoring 98.6 points per 100 possessions, a full 12.8 points worse than when Ojeleye is on the bench.
The Celtics have a net rating of -8.4 points when he plays, 18.9 points worse than when he sits. It begs the dual questions of just how much time on the court Ojeleye should see, and what the team’s expectations should be for him when he plays?
Ironic how these are many of the points I've been harping upon for months and what I saw, and continue to observe, is being supported by data.
98.6 per 100 Full 12.8 worse than when semi is on THE BENCH
Celtics have net rating of -8.4 18.9 points worse than when he SITS
SEEMS your saying everything is worse when he SITS- then it must be better when he plays.
Against Cleveland comeback he played 23 minutes and most of 4th
I would say his minutes may be a reflection of Morris being back and his offense
In late December he injured his back and his minutes started declining except for Cleveland but your now in Brads head and surmising he has lost confidence-could be Morris and his point production
Hey how is Crowder playing by the way!!!! and he is not a rookie
You love to eviscerate our rookies and end of bench-maybe we should have kept Green.
This a Brad quote from earlier this month"he is already close to being one of the best defenders in NBA"
"On defensive end i think he can be elite"
"I'm not sure he is far from that now"
AND my simple" he may eclipse Crowder" compared to your" he sucks" ,doesn't hustle non athletic comments-and you over ride combine stats because he trained for it -didn't everybody except Fultz,
This is a 2nd round pick getting minutes for one of the best teams with one of the best records-
It must infuriate you that Brad plays him against the best of the NBA
Even better he got an all star vote
