Honestly, you won't convince me that ppg is a more well-rounded/applicable stat than points per 100 possessions, because points per 100 possessions necessarily eliminates at least 1 extraneous factor that directly impacts PPG. I honestly can't respect an opinion that goes off PPG when a much better stat that corrects for at least 1 more variable is available. Nothing personal.
And I don't get your point differential argument: we are +.4 on the season...what's your point? We are 2 games over .500, meaning we win a little bit more than we lose. It's only logical that we score, on the whole, a little bit more than we give up.
