    Good point. JV's numbers seem legit, he's played almost exclusively against starters. Biz has seen a good chunk of minutes against starters as well though, much more than a typical backup, with JV missing a quarter of the season to injury.
    True. But these play type stats barely normalize over an entire season's worth of data.

    It's good that Biyombo has been getting positive results in the post, let's leave it at that.

    Have to keep in mind strength of opposition. 82nd percentile against bench players is not the same as 82nd percentile against starters.

    Ibaka (29.9 percentile) and Whiteside (24.5) are a bit surprising as well.

    Also Bismack is not a bad post defender as a someone claimed the other day. Between Tim Duncan and Marc Gasol in the 82nd percentile.

    Mahinmi is in the 74.5 percentile, so it looks like it will be a tough match up for JV.

    Was surprised by what that showed. Not just JV in first, but Monroe really high and Drummond in the 32nd percentile.

    Monroe has always been a solid post defender, but his help defence is not really there for a full time C, which is why I didn't like his signing with MIL.

    And Drummond is just a leaper, you can pump fake him easily enough in the post. Part of why JV usually does well against him.

    Yep!

    Barolt linked it, but you go to "play type" stats on NBA.com/stats, go to "post up," and open up the little "options" gear, you can select "defence" instead of "offence" and set filters.
    Thanks, Dan.

    Dan, Speaking of JV, he's been the NBA's best post-up defender this year, (min 100 defended). I found a link to post-up defense on NBA.com stats but the link seems to be gone and damned if I can find post-up defence on the site. Is that proprietary or do we have a way to access it?
    Yep!

    JV's opportunities have increased since the all star break. JV looks like a new man from the begenning of the season to now. I'm really excited to see how the big guy does in the playoffs. He's so important to the team's success.



    My guess is that he's looking to removed all noise or distractions. Casey has been endorsed, one less distraction to come up in the locker room or in front of the press.
    Good point re distraction.

    Clearly Biyombo should be starting over JV. :P

    Yep. One massive issue is a big upgrade over his usual three or four massive issues from previous years. There's small criticisms with less support (development time for young guys, but Wright and Powell look fantastic; offensive system/guard reliance, but the offence is incredible and JV's usage has been going up), but really only the one unacceptable rotation choice that is problematic this year.

    I like what Casey has been able to do with this roster which if you look at it objectively really doesn't stack up that well against the top NBA teams and many that aren't playing that well but have top talent.

    I think he's put questions about player development to bed as he's managed to do what he can while being one of the best teams in the league. I can't really think of anything other than Scola in the starting line up really hanging over his head.
