The whole purpose of these stats on percentages is to have a tool at hand to estimate what to expect next. For example if KP had hit 500 of his 1000 free throws, he'd still be around that ratio whether he hits the next one or not, and you'd expect him to continue hitting around that rate because you have a large enough sample size. Percentages work best when you scale down larger (bigger than 100) numbers.
KP hit 1 of his 2 free throws in two games. Scaling that rate up to 100 doesn't really mean much, because it doesn't make you expect him to shoot 50% going forward. It's just a single missed free throw.
Nevertheless, he is 37.5% from three (6/16 [4/9 + 2/7]) in two games. He should have missed one more to go down to 31.25%. Had he hit one more instead, his 3PT% would have been 43.75%!

(01-16-2021, 03:39 PM)pompelmo Wrote: Well, let's say I don't share your concern on his 1/2 free throw shooting in two games. Not going to the line enough? That might be a concern.
I thought I presented my point of view in a blunt but proper manner. Sorry if I offended you.

(01-16-2021, 03:51 PM)Kammrath Wrote: My question too.
1) Is he thinking the team NEEDS his offensive output and so he is trying to make an impact in the limited minutes he thinks he will get?
2) Is he stat hunting for himself?
I hope it is number one. But I do not like his approach these first two games regardless.

Then his numbers suffered when Powell was inserted to the line up. When he touches the ball less and feels he will get limited opportunities, he tries to make most out of it, which is the opposite of letting the game come to him. That messes with his rhythm. Luka avoiding him when he is available and trying to get Wes Iwundu going instead also doesn't help.
The end result of the game was acceptable last night, however the way it ended made me uncomfortable and I am still feeling it. Luka publicly questioning Rick, then KP pointing fingers makes me feel there is some growing tension. It makes me uneasy.

How many times have I seen best friends yelling at each other on the court... I think Luka statement after the game completely proves that. Carlisle is a grown man and Luka is a smart guy so I have no doubt they talked about it.
