Renaldo Balkman had a very nice statistical game against the Sacramento Kings. There were some tangible things we could all point to as far as his 17 points, six rebounds, three assists, three steals and plus 35 rating. However, Balkman is one of those players that supposedly makes plays that do not show up in the box score. Well, in a game where he had a significant impact on the box score, did he do even more? Did he still make plays that were not recorded in the box score?

Let’s go to the tape!

Some of these things may seem a little inane or insignificant, but I put together ten clips, from the first half alone, of situations where he made a play that was not reflected in the box score, other than a missed shot for the Kings here or there. You can decide for yourself if he made an even larger impact than his numbers suggest.


Come on George, let’s see what we can do to get Renaldo a little more PT.
