NBA Math gives Rob Williams high grades for post-season play

NBA Math did their analysis on Total Points Added (TBA) for second-year players' performances in the playoffs, and Celtics sophomore, Rob Williams, fared well. TIMELORD more than held his own on the offensive end and really stood out on defense.



The concept of total points added (TPA), isn't particularly complicated. We're looking at both defensive and offensive effectiveness on a per-possession basis while also incorporating the amount of playing time the contributor in question receives.

NBA Math puts playing time into the equation, and Rob only averaged 12.2 minutes per game in 10 post-season contests. His per-36-minutes stats show 11.8 PPG, 12.1 RPG, 2.7 APG, 1.5 BPG and 74% accuracy from the field. Not too shabby. It will be interesting to see where he sits on the chart if his playoff minutes head upwards. That may happen in the Conference Finals starting tomorrow night.
