They're a deep team. Only 2 players averaged 30 mins. Yet 6 players averaged double-digit points. And the team was 5th in the league in ppg. So your low assist theory wasn't much of an issue.
And who cares whether a team's stat-leader starts or not? He plays starter minutes and is obviously starter-caliber. Just prefers being 6th man. By the way, his assist average increased to 7.7 in the playoffs.
