Going past ‘raw efficiency numbers’ , decided to divide the efficiency by the minutes to get the efficiency per minute figure. This gives us an added dimension to see how effective a player performed.

For instance, on the NBA site (www.nba.com) , Saturday’s games saw Kris Humphries (no Kardashian jokes please) post the highest efficiency of any player that night, a 41 against the Bulls. Naturally Humphries logged more minutes, 45, than a lot of players that evening. Dividing his efficiency by minutes we get a .911 efficiency per minute. That figure, still outstanding, sheds more light on his performance.

The St. John’s players finished in the same order of efficiency per minute as overall efficiency. Except for Amir Garrett. His efficiency of 10, highlighted by 3 of 4 shooting, 8 rebounds, no turnovers, was accomplished in 32 minutes. Sir Dominic Pointer needed five more minutes for on extra point of efficiency, thus Garrett came out higher on the per minute basis.
