Standard & PER

For each team below, the computer calculates stats for every player to appear in the most recent 500 or so minutes of team play or, about 10-12 games. Stats are calculated from the player’s most recent 500 offensive & defensive possessions on the floor; this is roughly 250 minutes of playing time, varying with pace. Starters that play 30-40 minutes/game will play this number of minutes in a few weeks; role players will take longer. The “Time Span” column tells the range of time that the player’s stats are calculated from. I think this is a unique way (though not perfect) to standardize each player’s recent performance, capturing hot and cold stretches from a sample size large enough to diminish ridiculous noise. Alonzo Gee, Norris Cole and Robert Sacre will not record PERs of 20+ unless they’re making career-altering progress. If a player has played fewer than 500 possessions this season, the stats reflect his entire season. (MPG) reflects minutes per game during the given timespan, not MPG for the whole season.
