((Points + Rebounds + Assists + Steals + Blocks) - ((Field Goals Att. - Field Goals Made) + (Free Throws Att. - Free Throws Made) + Turnovers)).
For example, compare the following stat lines:
Player A: 17 points (5-of-22 FG, 7-9 FT), 8 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals, 4 turnovers.
Player B: 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 FT), 4 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 turnovers
The freshman scored a season-high 23 points and the Blue Devils routed Syracuse 73-54 on Saturday night for their ninth straight win.
Jahlil Okafor added 13 points and 14 rebounds and Quinn Cook scored 17 for Duke (26-3, 13-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), which shot 48 percent and used a late 20-7 run to roll to its 12th win in 13 games.
Tyler Roberson had 16 points, Trevor Cooney finished with 13 and Rakeem Christmas added 11 before fouling out with 9:42 left for Syracuse (18-11, 9-7), which was coming off an upset of No. 9 Notre Dame.
Duke transfer Michael Gbinije -- who had 27 points against his old team two weeks ago -- finished with 12 on 5-of-20 shooting, with several of those misses close range. The Orange were just 3 of 20 from 3-point range.
When the Blue Devils most needed a big shot, Winslow -- who Krzyzewski said has been playing with a fractured rib -- was there to hit one.
After Matt Jones started the decisive run with a 3, Winslow swished another one about a minute later -- in the process earning that rare during-the-play high-five from Coach K.
The lefty then stepped back behind the arc and connected again about 3 minutes after that to make it 51-33.
vs. SYRACUSE(change from previous game)
- Jahlil Okafor +21 (-9)
- Justise Winslow +29 (+11)
- Tyus Jones +14 (+5)
- Quinn Cook +12 (-12)
- Amile Jefferson +3 (-5)
- Grayson Allen +1 (-1)
- Matt Jones +9 (-4)
- Marshall Plumlee +1 (-)
Notes: Winslow posted a career high with a +29 rating thanks to a solid showing all over the court. The freshman forward scored a career high 23 points, grabbed nine rebounds, and hit 10 of 16 from the field.
Okafor also did well, posting a +21, but could have crested a +30 had his free throw shooting been even passable. The big man shot just 1-of-7 from the charity stripe. His score was still buoyed by 14 boards and 13 points along with four assists and 60 percent shooting from the floor.
Both Tyus Jones and Quinn Cook struggled from the field, shooting a combined 8-of-22 on the evening. Jones still posted a +14 and could have been higher if not for a career high six turnovers which offset his six assists.
Over the last two games each rotational player has posted a positive efficiency rating.
