The Numbers Game - The Impact of Caguioa's and Helterbrand's Minutes

Post by MR. FAST on Fri Nov 25, 2011 2:41 pm

with an
even 5-5 slate, i decided to look into the numbers to determine how
much of an impact does playing time make on our team. i decided to look
into this seeing as playing time was the gist of mark Caguioa's gripes
about the coaching staff.

i just did some basic maths and looked
into the minutes played by each player in our 5 wins and our 5 losses,
looking also at the points they scored and their FG%.

let's look at them one by one: (MPG=Minutes per game; PPG=points per game; FG%=field goal percentage)

THE STATS

Mark Caguioa:
MPG in Wins - 27.6 MPG in Loses - 20.6
PPG in Wins - 12 PPG in Loses - 13.8
FG% in Wins - 38% FG% in Loses - 44%

Jay Jay Helterbrand:
MPG in Wins - 24.4 MPG in Loses - 26.6
PPG in Wins - 8.4 PPG in Loses - 10
FG% in Wins - 52% FG% - 37%

WHAT IT MEANS:

i
guess this is very self-explanatory. in our 5 wins, Caguioa averaged
27.6 minutes, while 20.6 in losses. Jay Jay is 24.4 minutes in 5 wins,
and 26.6 minutes in losses.

simply put, this means that Mark
Caguioa needs to PLAY MORE. he may not be very efficient (12 points on
38% shooting) but his mere presence on the floor opens up the game for
everyone else, as evidenced by Jay Jay Helterbrand's 52% shooting.

when
Mark plays less than 27 minutes a game, it means that Jay Jay has to
play more minutes (26 minutes in loses, 24 only in wins) and as a
result, he gets exhausted by the end, as evidenced by his huge dip in
shooting percentage (52% in wins, 37% in loses). Mark averages more
points in loses because he now has to make up for Jay Jay's dip in
production as the game goes on. and with lesser minutes, he's not that
exhausted (as evidenced by a 6% increase in shooting percentage from 38
in wins to 44 in losses). but the minutes that he doesn't play means
the opponents have already taken advantage, and try as he might, he
can't overcome it. hence a loss.

from the data gathered, we can
see here what the coaching staff needs to do - play Caguioa at least 27
minutes a game, and Jay Jay to about 24-45 minutes, saving him for the
end game. the stats alone should be evidence enough.

(and this also gives credence to Mark Caguioa's claims that indeed the "veterans" can still play)


STARTING BACKCOURT:

believe it or not, our two headed dumb
dragon of a coaching staff, Jong and Siot, have already paraded 4 back
court combinations in 10 games. and believe it or not, a starting
combination of Helterbrand AND Caguioa have only been used ONCE.

here are the combinations and their corresponding records:

a. Helterbrand/Cortez - 3 losses
b. Helterbrand/Caguioa - 1 win
c. J. Wilson/Labagala - 2 wins, 2 losses
d. Helterbrand/Labagala - 2 wins

the
Helterbrand/Cortez backcourt is by far the WORST combo Siot and jong
has used so far, with a total of zero wins and 3 losses. i think this
is because Cortez and Helterbrand DO NOT compliment each other, as they
are mirror images of each other. Cortez likes the ball in his hands in
order to create, slash, penetrate and draw the defense. but Helterbrand
also likes that. when one of them has the ball, the other is relegated
to being a "receiver" and at best a spot-up shooter, roles of which
neither of them is very competent at.

the Helterbrand/Labagala
backcourt is so far the best with 2 wins. Labagala is content to let
Helterbrand run the show so he's, at best, not really doing anything to
impede Helterbrand's game. he's not stunting Helterbrand, but rather
allows him to flourish. he's not a decent shooter, but he most often
times bails out Helterbrand when he's trapped and picks his spots on
offense with his timely drives.

the John Wilson/Rob Labagala
backcourt is 50% effective, and it's effectivity depends on how many
minutes Caguioa and Helterband play. in 4 games as starters, they
averaged almost the same minutes in wins (14.5 minutes) and in losses
(14.75 minutes). they add nothing to the team, but they also take
nothing away from it by being starters. so they can start anytime for
me, just as long as the coaching staff gives ample minutes to Jay Jay
and Mark.

some of you may lament that the Helterbrand/Caguioa
backcourt should be the best but with only 1 game under their belts
together, the sample size is too small to say. remember when i said
that the Caguioa/Helterbrand starting back court has only been used
once this conference? this was it. the 10th game of the season, against
Alaska.

Jay Jay played 40 minutes, an anomaly since his
primary backup, Rob Labagala, netted a DNP (Labagala plays 16 minutes a
game as his backup. 40 less 16 is 24, Jay Jay's ideal minutes). Caguioa
played 27 minutes this game. (and we won. coincidence?)

so there
you go. i hope you guys like this, and i hope everyone took something
away from this. also, i hope the coaching staff reads this, and starts
playing Mark those 27 minutes a game. stop giving him those 12, 15 and
20 minute games, 27 is his magic number, and the closer to it he plays,
our chances of winning goes up.

the evidence is in the numbers. what more do you want?
