Part 2 of Neil Paine's study of how individuals fared against good and bad defenses in 2009-10 is up. Joe Johnson (14th in the league against both above- and below-average defenses) slips just to 17th against top-10 defenses and 16th against bottom-10 defenses but does not appear in the top 20 against either top-5 or bottom-5 defenses.
Al Horford is all over the leaderboards (usage rate between 18% and 23% division):
- 4th in the league against below-average defenses
- 9th in the league against top-10 defenses (over a 1500+ minute sample with a higher usage rate than his season mark)
- 4th in the league against bottom-10 defenses
- 4th in the league against bottom-5 defenses
