I have the sinking feeling..

First, I must say I only watch a few minutes of preaseason and did not get to any games. So, I am left with box scores.

The Suns look horrible in pre-season. PERIOD.

                           FG%     3p%     FT%    
Pre-season    .427     .246     .696    
09-10                .492    .412     .770


Opponent:
                           FG%     3p%     FT%
pre-season     .470     .341     .773    
09-10                .452     .355     .760

 

In every statistical category, the team played worse than last year. Short worse from the field, from the line, from the 3 point arc. Add that defensively, the team played worse than last year, the opponents shot better from the field, from the line, from the 3 point arc.

Well it is preason. I thought that maybe Steve is not playing as well, after all this is Steve Nash's team.

Steve averaged (all numbers are appx) 33 minutes per game last year with 11 assist and 16 points. So I took his average preseason numbers, and calculated his performance for 33 minutes. (Drumm.. role...)

For 33 minutes, Steve was 10 assist and 13 points vs. last year 11 and 16. Not much to see there, Steve played his normal self. So if we up his minutes to 32-32, his stats will look the same.

Why is the rest of the team DOWN? Is the loss of Amare going to be fatal? If we see that same team for the rest of the season, i have the sinking feeling we will be crying a lot.

 

I know, I know this is pre-season and well who cares..
