It's kind of sad, but at same time it makes you appreciate what he's doing. Clearly BG can't explode or create for himself much anymore.. maybe just every other game he has that type of energy/bounce. But he seems to be the ultimate team guy.. taking charges, passing it well and honestly he's defending very well for a guy that was never more than average or known for defense. I hope he gets a Championship and gets a few more years at this level at least in the league.

Atlanta wins again without Trae this time over Milwaukee. They will be playing back to back games in Philly coming up after a game with Detroit.

Buddy scored 25 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal. He's having to take over more of a scoring role since Fox is out a while. Kings lose to the Warriors 117-113

Looks like Blake is earning his keep.

Buddy had what I call a bad night shooting in a win over the Lakers last night. He was 1-11 from the field and 0-5 from three point range. He has 6 rebounds 7 assists and 2 steals, all in 32 minutes of playing time.

Now, would one of you + - experts please tell me how the heck was he a +13 in that game? Not that it will make any sense to me.

Because the Kings outscored the Lakers by 13 while he was on the floor. Didn’t see the game but based on the box score, looks like he played well overall despite the awful shooting night.

Trae returned to the Hawks last night and had a decent game. 32 points 4 assists. But the 76ers beat the Hawks easily 126-104.

+/- is a stat that shows how the score in the game changed while you were on the court. So buddy being +13 means the kings out scored the lakers by 13 points with buddy in the floor. Game to game is a pretty useless stat but over the course of an 82 game season it can show who plays winning basketball and who doesn’t.

I don't think it's meaningless at all. As a matter of fact, it's my favorite stat. It shows your true value as a player, because after all, isn't it about getting more points than the other team? Also, it shows the value of guys that aren't volume shooters/scorers and who do the other things, the little things. Like rebounding, defense, overall cohesiveness and glue. The things that aren't given as much attention.

Put me on the court with Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Shaq in their prime, and my +/- will be pretty high. Because I'd be smart enough to let those guys do their thing (and they'd be smart enough not to let me touch the ball) and whichever member of the opposing team went off because of my presence on the floor would hardly make up for the talents of that foursome.

I've seen too many instances where a particular player went off -- scoring a ton of points, racking up rebounds and assists and sometimes even blocks and steals -- but because he was the rest of his team stunk, his +/- score was lousy.

Maybe it has value over the course of a full season, but even then, it's too greatly affected by who the player's teammates are to be of much use.

The best way to do it is compare the teams average +/- with the players average. You can also see each lineups +/- average on the season so you can see if a player has a hike or dip when he’s with certain people.

So, Buddy was the Elijah Harklesss in that game, the glue guy who played solid defense, rebounded well and made a couple of steals to have a positive influence on the outcome. That, I can understand.

What I don’t get is why all of those shots he missed didn’t have a greater impact on his + - score? After all, missed shots often end in a turnover that gives the opponent an opportunity to score, while resulting in zero points for your own team.

Your explanations definitely helped me to have a better understanding of the + - scoring system. I’ll stop there with a semi-positive thought and a sincere thank you for trying.

Trae Young is playing well in the first half but his team is trailing against Chicago.

Buddy seems to be taking DeAaron Fox's role as a PG now with his assist totals lately.

Halliburton is also out for the season so they’ve had to change their offense and Buddy has been handling it more, even though he isn’t actually playing point from what I gather. Nice to see him doing a good job with the added responsibility since ball handling has been a weakness for him.
