Myth and Truth: The Thomas vs Vasquez argument


The great thing about stats is that they always tell the truth and there is really no need for much argument because facts are facts. Two plus two will always be four.
I took the last five games and did the math, here is the results:
Sr. Vasquez shot 53% he took 45 shots and made 24, avg. 11 pts. and 6 assists, the TO rate and rebounds are the same so I'll let that be.
Mr. Thomas shot 42% took 64 shots and made 27, avg. 15 pts. and 5 assists again TO and rebounds are the same.

So here is what I get from this:

1) Mr. Thomas took about 20 more shots to average 4 pts. a game more than Vasquez.
2) Mr. Thomas is a quicker player and should do a better job on defending up front. I was surprised at what I found.
I'm gone to let your intellectual curiosity look this up, if you have the time, because I know you won't believe me.
Just go to ESPN and search stats of the last 5 games and see how many points were scored by guards when Thomas was on the floor and when Vazquez was on the floor.

Go to shot-chart, you can pick players names and see the shots, the play by play will show you the time players were in, don't count when both players are on the floor.
I think that having 20 more missed balls floating around with the potential of being transitional buckets for the other team is not worth 4 more points a game , it looks good to fans but the reality is something else.
I know you guys are thinking I'm being a Vaz maniac here but...Stats never lie...Just saying mi amigos just saying.
