Updated SportVU-based Rim Protection Values
Other stuff to note is that Miles Plumlee has continued to slide, some, defensively after a good start. He's still #2 in the league in contests per minute, but is allowing 50.1% on those contests, which is roughly league average. He still grades out in the top 20% or so of defensive bigs on this metric. On the other side of the ledger, Joakim Noah seems to be coming on by leaps and bounds. He started the year looking fairly average, but it seems his defense is ascending almost as much as his offensive and playmaking game have been recently and he is firmly in the top 15% or so of rim protectors over the course of the season.
