Biyombo's emergence as of late
I just wanted to start a threat about the recent play of Biz..i think over the past 5 games he has really played well.....he really worried me to start the year ( including summer league and preseason ) bc he looked like he had regressed big time and i know it was premature but alot of us were kind of thinking bust??
Dunlap has increased his minutes over the last 5 games ( from 19 to 27 a game ) and Biz has taken full advantage..i have been really impressed as of late and have noticed that he seems to be more agressive and alot smarter about his agressiveness ( if thats a word )
Thru the first 12 games he was averaging 4 points 3.4 rbds and 1.3 blocks...this was in roughly 17 minutes...now in the past 5 games where he has played pretty good basketball Dunlap has increased his minutes from those 17-18 to 27 minutes a game...and he just hasnt been a stiff out there taking up space and not making use of those minutes...its been quite the opposite
over the last 5 games in 27 minutes a game he is averaging 6 points...7.6 rbds and 2.4 blocks...not mind blowing numbers but its a vast improvement...and with Biz its not all about stats...u can just tell by watching him that he looks alot better...he has been a force down low in the past 5 and has made himself open for easy dunks down low and been more agressive and alot more poised when it comes to blocking shots...
I just figured that Biz deserved a little shout out for his recent play and wanted to get everyones opinion
