No player has been as efficient as Enes Kanter off the bench, as evidence by his extremely high PER (Player Efficiency Rating). Enes recorded a 33 point and 20 rebound game against the Portland Trailblazers, a team who saw his potential and offered him a contract in the summer before it was matched by the OKC. What is even more remarkable is that Enes’ 24 double-doubles this season is the 3rd most in the NBA in the last 30 years coming off the bench, and the most since 1992!
Enes’ hard work, determination and work ethic has allowed him to play in every single game so far this season. He has received praise from his teammates for his willingness to make adjustments for the betterment of the team. Head coach Billy Donovan praised Enes Kanter & Steve Adams last month for their ability on their court.
