Assist Charts 2010-11: Tayshaun Prince

This is the latest installment of a series called “Assist Charts.” For each of the 13 Pistons who played this year, I’m going to show whom they assisted and who assisted them.

Each post will be divided into two sections: Player assists to and Assists from player. Player assists to shows who the featured player assisted. Assists from player shows who assisted the featured player.

Each section will display two pie graphs and corresponding tables. One graph and table will show totals, and the other set will show per 36 minutes.

All the graphs and tables are color-coded with a specific color assigned to each player throughout the series. Point guards are blue. Shooting guards are orange. Small forwards are green. Power forwards are red. Centers are yellow.

What we learned

Surprise, surprise: Tayshaun Prince assisted Richard Hamilton more often per minute on the court together than he assisted any other teammate. Those two relied on each other throughout the season – both on and off the court. It would be interesting to see how the remaining player reacts if the Pistons shed only one of the two.

What we learned

Of course, Richard Hamilton also assisted Tayshaun Prince more than anyone else did, both in terms of total assists and per minute with each player. The two Piston veterans have clearly established a chemistry during their nine years together. Although we didn’t see as many last season, Hamilton-to-Prince alley-oops have become a Detroit staple.
