Doing the Splits: Bucks by the numbers

New, comments

Redd and Jennings love the BC.  After last night's 24-point effort, Redd is now averaging 17.1 ppg, 4.5 rpg, and 0.5 to/g on 41.5% shooting at the BC.  Not exactly lights out, but significantly better than his road splits: 8.7 ppg and 2.0 rpg on 28.6% shooting.  All four of Redd's 20+ point games have come at home.

Brandon Jennings is similarly far more comfortable at the BC, shooting .437/.481/.827 at home compared to .353/.307/.792 on the road.  Jodie Meeks' long-distance shooting is also remarkably home biased: he's 1/20 (5%!) on the road but 17/40 (42.5%) at home.

The Bucks' road warriors?  Veteran reserves Luke Ridnour and Hakim Warrick.  Warrick's only a 42% shooter at home, but makes 49.6% of his shots on the road.  Ridnour has been way better than his career splits at home--50.6% shooting from the field and 39.5% from deep--and he's been even better on the road: 53.2% from the field and and even 40% from three.

Andrew Bogut loves rest...  Bogut's home/road splits are fairly even--he scores more at home but gets more minutes and shoots a lower percentage at the BC.  However, his performance is significantly better the more time he has off.  He averages less than 14 ppg on sub-45% shooting with no days off or one day off, but with two or more days off he puts up Dwight Howard numbers: 20 ppg, 11 rpg, 2.6 bpg and 56% shooting.Bogut_splits_medium

The same can't be said of Carlos Delfino, whose best numbers have come on the second night of a back-to-back: 10.2 ppg, 4.8 rpg, and .419/.444/.875 shooting.

...and the Bucks love a rested Andrew Bogut.  As we mentioned yesterday, when Bogut's good, so are the Bucks.  With the win last night the Bucks moved to 11-1 when Bogut scores 17 or more.  In wins he averages 20.6 ppg, 10.8 rpg, 2.2 bpg on 58.5% shooting.  In losses: 11.5 ppg, 8.9 rpg and 40.9% shooting.  Yikes.

Jennings and Redd are also not surprisingly better when the Bucks win, but the splits aren't quite as dramatic.  Meanwhile, Ersan Ilyasova's scoring numbers are slightly better in losses and his home/road splits are essentially even.  We all know the Night Stalker isn't afraid to shoot, and it doesn't seem to matter when/where he's doing it.

The most obvious exception to the "better in wins" theme is Hakim Warrick.  In the same number of minutes, Warrick shoots 7% better from the field, 11% better from the line, and averages two more ppg in losses.
