That stat will tell you why we are having problems... to soft in the middle now.  shaq was filling Perks role of being Tough in the middle in the begining of the season.  now with neither of them teams are getting in the lane and to the basket to easy.. D not as good so not leading to the 5-7 easy baskets it would produce each game before.  Defensive stats my be the same since trade  ... but remeber your not gonna change the average much in 15-20 games
