ESPN Insider Per Diem:Tim Best in Block-Steal and Danny "Big" Green is Most Deadly Open Shooter, in the league

Take that, Green haters. Highest Block-Steal percentage And the HabersTrophy goes to ... Tim Duncan Here's a fun one: SportVU tracks how often a block is recovered by the defensive team, which is something I like to call a "block-steal." That's what we really want to know, right? Most blocks fall into the hands of the defensive team, but who posted the highest block-steal percentage in the NBA? Of course, it's the Big Fundamental himself, Tim Duncan. In fact, 68 percent of Duncan's blocks became possessions for the Spurs, which is the highest rate among more than a dozen players with at least 50 blocks tracked by SportVU. Lowest percentage? Greg Stiemsma -- only 47 percent of his blocks were recovered by the Timberwolves. Serge Ibaka, the block leader, has a 62 percent block-steal percentage. Most Deadly Open Shooter And the HabersTrophy goes to ... Danny Green Whatever you do, do not leave this guy alone. According to SynergySports' video tracking, Green shot 56 percent from the floor on unguarded catch-and-shoots, the top rate in the league (minimum 100 plays). Considering all the 3s he takes, he effectively shoots 81.3 percent from the floor when he's open. He has scored an average of 1.63 points every time he gets that shot, compared to just 1.09 points when his shot is contested, according to Synergy video. That plus-0.53 difference is the largest in the league. Second-largest difference? Carmelo Anthony (plus-0.51 points per shot). Better guard that guy, too.
