Its the early part of the season. Were are 5-7 with a tough early schedule. In the last four games, Demar is shooting 50.6% and getting more than 29 points per game.
Rudy has a low shooting percentage. But the team is better on defense when he is on the floor, he is leading the team in rebounds (7.7), blocks (1.1), and tied for steals (1.67). He is still a threat on offense, so he opens the floor for his teammates, and he does the little things to help the team win. This team is better when he is on the floor.
