Marcus Morris has been killing it


Look at those numbers!  The man so many declared a bust last season is shooting 49% overall this year and 40% on threes!  Per 36 minutes, he’s averaging 17.3 points and 7.9 boards.  At the moment, Morris is far and away this team’s second best offensive weapon.

Also noteworthy is the rebounding rate.  Morris is getting 12% of the available rebounds while he’s on the floor.  Patrick Patterson is getting 9% of the available rebounds.  (By comparison, Omer Asik grabs 20% of available rebounds.)  I’m not sure how much value that comparison holds as Patterson shares more court-time with Asik and also plays more against first-stringers…but it’s something to note.
