1/9 Big Man update:

(BMOtN) Domantas Sabonis: 37/10/13/3/0 versus Pistons
Rudy Gobert: 21/12/1/1/3 versus Magic
Karl-Anthony Towns: 28/6/5/3/0 versus Magic
Julius Randle: 20/7/8/0/1 versus Trail Blazers
Anthony Davis: 41/11/6/0/1 versus Raptors


Narrowly giving the edge to Sabonis over Davis. Both guys dominated sorry teams, but Sabonis got his issue off on the road, so that's worth bonus points.

I don't see Davis in there. Is that the last stat line?

Does getting a triple-double tilt the scales in his favor as well, or do you not consider that? He more than doubled the assists, with similar points and rebounds. Just curious.

Not necessarily. If anything rankings for counting stats, in my Personal Record Book™, go as follows:
  1. Rebounds
  2. Blocks
  3. Points
  4. Steals
  5. Assists
It would not be unusual for me to rank a 20/20 game or a 30/15 game over a triple double, unless there was something particularly unusual about the triple double.

Gotcha. What order are your stats in? I don't see it in your OP, and those obviously aren't the order presented each day.

No, the stats are ordered in the traditional sequence: Points-Rebounds-Assists-Steals-Blocks. That has nothing to do with the value I place on said stats.

Thanks, I wasn't sure of the order of the steals and blocks in particular - I didn't know there was a "traditional" order for those two, probably because I don't do a whole lot of digging around in stat sites or whatever like many others here do. It may be helpful to list that in your OP next year just in case some idiot like me doesn't know. :)

I hear you, but I've been doing this for, like, six (?) years now, and you're the only person who has indicated that they didn't know which numbers were listed in which order, so I don't feel inclined to start adding that additional exposition to the first post.

I mentioned earlier in this thread. So second person.

Okay, but you expressed which numbers were what, which I did not interpret as you not actually knowing and/or having had to find out on your own. I interpreted as you trying to help, and I disregarded it because I didn't know whom it was you thought you were helping?

I am way more impressed by 17 rebounds and 2 blocks than I am by 14 assists. But the Trail Blazers are trash, so Joker gets it.

Unless somebody balls out in the second half of this PHX/POR game, it's gonna be Gobert.

Reluctantly giving it to Embiid, due to quality of opposition. I kind of really want to acknowledge that 20 reb game from Adebayo, though.

Come on - you said you like Big Men who rebound and nobody else got 21 boards like Domas. This thing is rigged, I tell you, rigged! ;)
