Default Knicks play much better without Billups - Coincidence or not ?

I opened the same thread on the main forum but I decided to open it here as well.

WITH BILLUPS
(3-10)

WITHOUT BILLUPS

First of all,Knicks have better record without Billups.
All three players shoot so much better without Billups.
Stoudemire shoots 7.9% better.
Melo shoots 6.6% better from the field,8.8% better from the three point line.
Fields shoots 21.1% better from the field, 7.8% better for three.

On top of that,Melo averages 4.8 assists without Billups.
That's 2.5 assists more despite the fact he plays 3 minutes less.

Stoudemire is a beast without Billups,30.7 points per game on 54% shooting while he averages only 21.3 points per game with Billups on 46.2% shooting.

Our 3 best players are playing so much better and efficient without Billups.

Also I will show you our offensive and defensive stats with and without him.

WITH BILLUPS:
Points per game: 102.4
Points allowed per game: 105.5
Difference: -3.1

WITHOUT BILLUPS:
Points per game: 110.7
Points allowed per game: 105
Difference +5.7

COINCIDENCE OR NOT ?
