For much of the season, Collins has posted the best on/off numbers of any Atlanta Hawk (albeit always in limited minutes) and, just to be clear, those numbers aren't entirely down to playing Collins mostly against bad teams* and alongside both Al Horford and Josh Smith.
*The New Orleans is the only team in the bottom 12 of the league in offensive efficiency that has a winning record.
|Jason Collins||Poss||Off Eff||Def Eff||Margin|
|w/ Smith & Horford||512||109.2||97.9||+11.3|
Perhaps some explanation for Collins's excellent on/off stats stems from him sharing the court with Josh Powell (-10.9 per 100 on-court possessions this season) for just 4.46% of his possessions. This past post and one future post will show how other Hawks centers have not been so lucky.
