    Fun Facts for the season

    -Three franchises increased their winning percentage by more than 15% season over season and only the 2019-20 Lakers increased their winning percentage by a greater margin than the Mavs (Lakers- .327, Mavs- .195, Heat- .155)

    -Luka Dončić is an example of a player whose efficiency suffered towards the end of the season as he saw his production slip in the following categories after the first 24 games of the season: points (-2.2), 3-pointers (-0.4), rebounds (-0.8), assists (-0.7), steals (-0.3), field goal percentage (-.037) and free throw percentage (-.096). This resulted in his value dropping from a 1st/1st round per-game value in his first 24 appearances to 4th/6th round per-game value in his last 29 games (Dec 14 game removed from sample due to in-game injury that resulted in Luka playing just under 2 minutes of action).

    -Despite the dip we saw from Dončić in category leagues, the Slovenian guard was the fourth-highest ranked player over the entire season in points leagues due to the fact that percentages are not as detrimental to overall value in points formats

    -Kristaps Porziņģis’ fantasy season was the inverse of Luka’s as the forward saw his value increase from 7th/6th round per-game value (23 games through Dec 12) to 2nd/1st round per-game (28 games since Dec 14) due to improvements in every statistical category outside of turnovers. Since the beginning of February, Porziņģis was the highest ranking player in 9-cat leagues in terms of per-game value (14-game sample size).

    -Prior to the suspension of the league, Tim Hardaway was having one of the best fantasy stretches of his career as he returned 6th/5th round per-game value in 17 games since Feb 3 compared with 16th/15th round per-game value in 46 games prior to Feb 3

    -Seth Curry also saw his fantasy production explode in the his last 12 games prior to the league suspension as he produced 4th/4th round per-game value since Feb 7 compared with 17th/16th round per-game value in 47 games prior
