The Numbers: No G-Money Edition (31/12/13 and 4/1/14)

The Sixers have done very well to win the last 2 games without gun import Gary Ervin. Backup Jason Cadee has filled in admirably but is he the only reason the Sixers have continued to win? Let's look

JASON CADEE
Cadee picked the right time to hit some hot form. He's been playing well for the last month and was in career form when he was given the opportunity to cover for Ervin. He's averaged 11.5pts and 5 assists in those 2 games, not Ervin numbers but he's certainly done well. It's no coincidence his +/- numbers are a lot healthier now too. He's gone +34 in the last two games (second best on the team) and has risen in the team standings.

ADAM GIBSON
He's averaged 9 points and 6 assists while Ervin has been out but has certainly more than held his own. He's only been +8 for the last 2 games but he's been given a bigger workload.

JARRID FRYE
Frye has been a team-leading +39 in the last 2 games. Guess the ankle is feeling better. He's scored 10 points and grabbed 4 boards in each game and seems to have a clear role- attack the basket in transition and/or when the offense is stagnant, play defense, grab rebounds and try not to get fouled!

ANTHONY PETRIE
Has been +33 in the last two. Averaged a double-double in just over 21 minutes a game. Can't wait to see him guard Sam Young Sunday.

DANIEL JOHNSON
Averaged 23 points and 9 boards and has got more shots with G-Money out. He's been very good and looks so much more legit when he's blocking shots and running the lanes.

BRENDAN TEYS
Hit some shots Sunday but is mainly there to give some rest for the starters and play D.

MITCH CREEK
Struggled versus the Crocs but was at his best Sunday. Provided loads of energy and harassed the Breakers guards.

BJ ANTHONY
Scored 7 points but was called for 9 fouls over the last 2. Must get his foul troubles sorted.

LUKE SCHENSCHER
Averaged 11 points, 8 boards and 2 blocks in 14 minutes with Ervin out. Sixers very tough to beat when he's contributing like that.

ADAM DOYLE and KYLE ADNAM
Both showed something in their brief minutes. Doyle certainly looks like he could contribute with a few minutes a game.
