    1. Kanter turns the ball over at an alarming rate. Median team turnover rate is 13.4%. Kanter's stands at 21.6% (Favors: 13.2%; Millsap: 10.4%; Jefferson: 6.9%). Kanter is tops among the 4 bigs in postup points per possession at 0.84 (Millsap: 0.84; Favors: 0.83; Jefferson: 0.82; league average as of December 14th: 0.83), despite turning the ball over on 32.8% of his postups (shots, shooting fouls or turnovers).

    2. Kanter converts offensive rebounds at a very poor rate. 21.2% of Kanter's scoring opportunities come off offensive rebounds (league average as of December 14th: 6.5%...although this is certainly much higher for bigs). On these opportunities, he puts up 0.85 points per possession. League average PPP on offensive rebounds is 1.10; league average PPP on all non-transition scoring opportunities (postups, Pick and rolls, cuts, spotups, etc.) is 0.92 (both league average numbers as of December 14th).

    Dude needs to pass when shots aren't there. On offensive rebounds, if you can get a shot right away, take it. If not, reset the offense. In postups, protect the ball, and pass it out when stuck in traffic. Seems easy enough.
    Good work. Thanks for posting this.

    In our young men's basketball team we have this 6"6' boy who is very Un-athletic... I tell him to run to either side of the paint and our pg will throw the ball to you... I then tell him don't bring the ball down once you have it, keep it up and aim for the red outlined square on the backboard.. He probably makes 33% of his shots but never turns it over cuz he never brings the ball down...


    I'm sure if this 17 year old boy can master this concept Kanter will figure it out soon enough!!!

    Since we can't actually reset the offense on this team, a better option for him might be to close his eyes and throw it over his head in the vague direction of the basket. Otherwise, excellent points.

    This is a team wide problem. Jazz are as bad tipping in as they are shooting jumpers. Howeva, Kanter sometimes is great at missing the first, getting a rebound, and making the second.

    I've called for them to kick it back out before but since then they've decided offensive rebounds underneath aren't necessary. One pump chumps.
    Well done Sophie

    Most of Kanter's TO probably come on offensive fouls. He is setting a lot of moving screens and fouling on his post ups.

    No idea if this is true, but sounds pretty accurate.

    Kanter had a great half tonight. Still foul prone but his ability to run the court was pretty awesome.

    I liked his unselfish pass to hayward, as he was able to score again...

    Why they call him BIG-AL, think of it

    Kanter's line tonight: 23pts, 22rebs (17 defensive), 1 blk.

    On defense (together with Favors), limiting Biyombo & Mullens to a combined 13 pts and 8rebs.

    There is no player I have anywhere near 100% confidence in. Biyombo probably comes in second after Irving for me and even he has plenty of ?s.
    Ouch.

    I still remember when Biyombo had that individual workout.

    Someone said Biyombo "just went 1 on 1 against air and lost"

    Lmao.
