I think the lone Francisless win was against Milwaukee, in the middle
of that team's stretch collapse.

and a 5-win team without him. That looks like 37 more wins, to me.

greatest format. I could post them if other people want to reformat
and repost in more useable format. Against the US, he had 5 pts, 2
blocks, and 5 fouls in 15 minutes. Wang Zhi-Zhi played a lot better
than Ming. The US shot 57% against the Chinese and won by 47. They
got 70 points in the paint. They got 22 points off second shots and
completely dominated the offensive boards. Part of Ming's problem
was that the guards could not get him the ball. On the defensive
side, I'm not sure what you can blame his problems on.
