5336How well do players play on no rest?
- Dec 3, 2004Taking a look at the per-days-of-rest splits for Drew
Gooden this year, I found something peculiar:
0 days rest - 34.4 mpg, 16.2 ppg, 13.2 rpg, 4.4 FTA/g,
2.4 bpg, 1.2 spg
1 days rest - 29 mpg, 11.8 ppg, 8.8 rpg, 3.8 FTA/g, 1
bpg, .5 spg
2 days rest - 26.5 mpg, 7 ppg, 8.5 rpg, 2.5 FTA/g, .8
bpg, 1.8 spg,
Except for the 1.8 spg on 2 days rest (mostly
resulting from a 4 steal outburst against the Wizards
on 11/13), he seems to be playing significantly better
on no rest. I found this interesting, because I
noticed the same pattern with him last year as well.
Anyone have any theories on why this might be? What is
the "optimal" number of days of rest for players?
