As we all know, apparently January is the best month to be a 2 guard for the Twoles. Since it just ended, I thought it would be worthwhile to compare the Month of Foye and the Month of Brewer:
First off, the big note here is that any similarities in stats did NOT translate into any similarities in record. That's important to me, anyway.
But can you believe that CBrew shot better from the field and from 3? What kind of odds would you have gotten for that after December? Obviously Foye got more mintues and shot way better from the FT line (Brew is improving there, and if he winds up something closer to 80%, look out). Interestingly Brewer's steals have decreased every month and he averaged sub 1 per game in Jan. Do we think that he's decreased his defensive intensity to improve his offense (I know that steals is not a good proxy for defense, but still . . . ).
In any event the real key is if this is the abberation (a la Foye) or if this is a trend. Here's hoping its the latter. . .
