I want you to look all the way over to the far right hand side.  Now, I'm not calling Hollinger's PER the end-all of basketball stats, but it's pretty good.  The average NBA PER is 15.  More accurately, it's adjusted each year so that the average is 15.  Right now the Wolves have three above average players and they all play the same position. 

I can't stress to you just how bad these last 10 games were for the Wolves.  Absolutely nothing was going right.  From Brewer's injury to Collins' minutes to Miller's ankle to Witt's firing, these last 10 games have been absolutely brutal for the franchise and you'd really like to hope that they were a bunch of anomalies rather than a series of trends. 

In the series of stats we are following at the beginning of the post the Wolves have seen drop offs in 10 out of 15 categories during the last stretch of 10 games.  The only big improvement they've made is in OReb and eOReb and you can chalk these two up to the increased minutes and production of one Kevin Love.  Beyond that, they broke even with record and points against while slightly increasing their pace.  They saw significant 10-game decreases in OE, points for, point differential, and their eFG continued to fall.

Going back to the Ryan Gomes experiment at the 4, as you can see from his stats, he's getting blown out of the water, primarily at the defensive end.  He is averaging 6.5 more shots than his opponent but he is being outscored by nearly 2 pts/48.  His time at the 3 has increased due to Miller and Brewer being out so it will be interesting to see if this trend continues. 

One of the most disappointing negative trends for this club is 3 point shooting.  They average the league's 26th worst number of attempts, they are the 25th worst percentage shooting 3 point team, and they are the 26th worst 3 point scoring club in the NBA with only 14.5 ppg off the long ball.   Their opponents are scoring nearly 20 ppg from beyond the arc while shooting nearly 7% better than the Wolves. 

The Wolves are simply a terrible shooting club right now.  Their non-inside 2 point shooting is dreadful.  It's good for 28th in the league.  They have a nice inside percentage but they give up
