Don’t look now, but the Pacers seem to be progressing with Murphy and Dunleavy — as one of our readers pointed out.
After Saturday’s blowout win over Toronto, the Pacers are 3-1 with Murphy leavy in the lineup. They have averaged 100.5 points in those four games, up from 95.6 before Murphleavy. Even more, with Murphleavy, they’ve allowed 94.3 points per game, compared with 96.6 before their arrival.
Dunleavy’s numbers aren’t too impressive. In four games, he’s averaging 13.2 points on 38 percent shooting (19-for-50), 4.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.5 turnovers. He’s getting his fair share of shots (clealry they think he’s a shooter).
Murphy is averaging a double-double for the Pacers (10.5 points, 10.8 rebounds).
Of course, as we well know, numbers don’t tell the whole story.
