Pointless post of the day....just food for thought....and maybe its the lesser of 2 evils.....
I am surprised that we dont see or hear more discussion about whether we should see more of Tim Henderson and less of Elijah Justice. Justice might be able to distribute the ball but he hasnt shown the ability to shoot at all and his assist to TO makes it hard to be comfortable with him even as a spot backup for Siva. Maybe statistics are misleading but they seem to favor Henderson.
Justice has played more minutes than Henderson (97 to 57), both shoot under 40% from the field (39% to 36%), they average the same pts per game (1.3), and have the same total rebounds (9 each).
Henderson shoots better from 3 pt (3/7 vs 1/10) and has an even 1:1 assist to TO with 8 each (Justice has 8 assists and 11 TOs).
Justice has a lot of steals per minutes played with 8 total in 97 minutes but he has also committed 15 fouls which is extremely high.
I just dont see what the difference is. I am sure that most will just say, "CRP sees practice and just trust that". I get that but CRP does seem to play a lot of favorites too.
I dont see every game because I live in the Philippines but from what I have seen, Henderson even passes the eye test. That doesnt mean he should see significant minutes but I dont see that his play justifies seeing so much less floor time than Justice.
