Hello! I have no point to make here, but some of us last night were discussing the performance of lineups including Amar'e Stoudemire alongside Tyson Chandler and/or Carmelo Anthony. Since Amar'e's questionable ability to fit with either or both of those guys has been something of a meme for a while now, I figured I'd pull up some numbers.
Bear in mind that Amar'e has played 13 games this season. 290 total minutes. These are small samples. Anyway, here are a few numbers to sniff:
- According to NBA.com, these Knicks have posted overall efficiency numbers of 108.6 points per 100 possessions on offense and 103.2 points per 100 possessions on defense. (Basketball-reference numbers are slightly higher, probably because they count possessions differently, but the numbers below are from NBA.com so we'll use the above as a baseline).
So, how's Amar'e fitting in with Melo and Tyson so far?
