Actually I think the turnover is given to the last guy who had possession of the ball. The passer often gets the turnover if the guy getting the pass slips it through his hands or doesnt really come to meet the pass allowing a turnover. So basically PG's (and other guys who handle the ball a lot and create offense for others) actually receive more turnovers than they should.

And when it comes to our low scoring in last few games, do you guys really think its Calderons fault? Our first option is shooting like 20% from the field lately and the only other guy who can even somewhat create his own shots is inconsistent as hell.

And maybe our offense is predictable, because we just dont have that many choices. When guys like Wright and Davis playing major minutes, you just dont have that many guys on the floor that can be used for offensive purposes.

Btw. 2/1 assits to turnover ratio isnt that bad for a stretch. Some guys that average that kind of numbers for season: Manu Ginobili, Chauncey Billups, Jerryd Bayless, Stephen Curry, Jarret Jack, Tyreke Evans. And for the season Jose is still more like 4/1.
