Grizzlies in wins and losses

I decided to do a quick scan of Grizzlies statistics in wins and losses last year. What I found was interesting to me so I decided to share them. Without further ado, the stats for players who played significant minutes last year:

Mike Conley

FG% 3PT FG% FT% PPG RPG APG
In Wins 47.3% 37.2% 81.1% 15.6 3.0 6.6
In losses 37.3% 33.7% 88.2% 12.6 2.5 5.1

Tony Allen

FG% 3PT FG% FT% PPG RPG APG
In Wins 46.0% 15.8% 72.2% 9.6 4.7 1.4
In losses 40.9% 0% 70.4% 7.4 4.4 1.0

Jerryd Bayless

Quincy Pondexter

In Wins 45.8% 41.7% 75% 6.6 2.2 1.1
In losses 34.9% 34.1% 89.5% 5.6 2.3 0.9

Ed Davis*

FG% 3PT FG% FT% PPG RPG APG
In Wins 54.3% 0% 54.4% 7.5 5.4 0.7
In losses 53.6% 0% 68.2% 7.9 6.0 1.3

If you think last year is a fluke, check out Conley in '11-'12:

FG% 3PT FG% FT% PPG RPG APG
In Wins 47.7% 44.2% 88.1% 14.1 2.3 6.7
In losses 36.4% 28.1% 81.6% 10.6 2.8 6.2

And our leading outside shooter in '11-'12, OJ Mayo:

FG% 3PT FG% FT% PPG RPG APG
In Wins 43.7% 41.5% 84.3% 13.8 3.0 2.7
In losses 36% 27.3% 65.6% 10.8 3.4 2.3

So what can we learn from these numbers? Well, it's not news, really. We've been hurting for shooters and a backup point guard. Of course, most players' stats will be lower in losses but the big splits we see for Conley and our top shooter tell me if Conley isn't going well and/or our top shooter is not going well, we've had problems winning.

Bringing in Miller helps alleviate the concern by giving you multiple shooter options. We still are lacking the backup PG that can provide a spark when Conley's having an off night. Mo Williams has been mentioned and seems like a good fit because of his ability to fill both the shooter and the point spark roles, but even if the Grizzlies don't get him, a ready-now backup PG makes a lot of sense because of that. That's how I interpret the numbers. How do you?
