Increased Statistical Output

Porzingis is playing more minutes this season–34.2 compared to 28.4–so it makes sense that all of his per game stats have increased. However, it is still worth noting that his points, rebounds, and assists per game have all increased. He is averaging 20 points, 7.7 boards, and 1.4 assists this season, compared to last years 14.3-7.3-1.3 clip.

KP has also cut his turnovers slightly, from 1.7 a year ago to 1.5 this year. As a result, his assists to turnover ratio has gone from 0.78 to 0.94. He averages .1 more turnovers than assists, which is solid, again, considering his size and the position he plays.
