    Yep. Obviously small samples, but Pascal's efficiency (ORTG) has been skyrocketing with each passing month:

    Dec (89) / Jan (114) / Feb (130).

    Anything above ~ 115 ORTG @ > 25% USG is star level offensive production. Obviously his February ORTG of 130 won't be sustainable, but that's great to see.


    What's Freddy's month by month ORTG look like?

    Yeah but the only thing I'd add for all these guys: Siakam, OG, Fred, Norm, is that they aren't done developing yet. Why are we going to say "this is who Siakam is" now? I mean it might be, or he might keep getting better. Same with all those guys.

    Siakam does seem a bit fragile mentally/emotionally. No knock, it's just who he is. An emotional player who needs to be feeling good and having fun to play well. When his confidence is gone his game is a mess. Mind you, even that is not uncommon a thing for young guys to work through. He may become more consistent & reliable yet. I'm not writing any of these guys off considering the insane development curves we've seen from Fred and Pascal already. Just incredible.
    Up until last night, after the horrific start, it looks like he made a conscious decision to screw the 3-ball and try to play bully ball inside with his length and quickness. Playing inside-out seems like the right approach for him, since he's not a natural shooter. He will really need to work on his body to make that sustainable.

    The problem was that we had bubble P that primarily cost us the series against Boston. Then we had a couple of months off for him to get his head on straight.. and he started the new season as if bubble P never left.

    Remember how many fouls he was getting earlier in the season? He got DQ'd and went crying to the locker room.. only to get benched the next game. The very next game he played, he played like trash again. He was averaging less than 25% from 3, but was chucking them.

    He's getting so much better because for the past few games he's been working hard to trying and scoring in the paint. He hit his 3's last night which is awesome. He's slowly turning into 2nd team All-Nba P. We want more of that guy.. and that guy doesn't have to be a #1 option.

    Pascal's come a long way.. but it was pretty ugly early on.

    Well players struggle. Whatever happened in the bubble, we don't know what happened behind the scenes. He struggled big time, struggled early on this season and now he is getting back to how he played pre-bubble.
