Green got twice as many blocks per 100 possessions.
Well... since you insist!
Per 40 minutes, Jeff got .75 blocks vs. .4 for Dekker, correct. That has a positive effect.
Then again, per 40 minutes, Sam Dekker got 1.75 steals vs. Green's .87 -- tell me which of those stat differences matters more? The .35 extra blocks? Or the .88 extra steals?
Oh, & per 40 minutes, Sam had 1.25 turnovers vs. Green's 1.92. Again, would you say that's more or less important than the difference in blocks?

Nah. Not compared to Dekker's minutes for us. Jeff had a big .17 more assists per 40 minutes. Trivial difference.

Suppose you were to count those extra turnovers against Jeff's TS%. Like missed shots, say. Brings his TS% down to .588 -- still very good.
Oh, & suppose you were to count the extra 2 offensive boards Sam got in those same minutes as removing 2 missed shot attempts? Gee, that puts Sam's TS% at .580.
Funny how small that "big one" is in reality, huh? Then there are the extra fouls Jeff committed.
Overall, by any sensible measure, Sam played better than Jeff.
Then again, probably the best way to look at it as follows: last season, Sam & Jeff combined for over 2700 minutes. We won 32 games. This year they're both gone. It's hard to imagine that's going to hurt us.
