More Blocks Than Fouls

We have written before that nearly all post defenders commit more fouls than shots they block.   Milwaukee Bucks second year man John Henson went the first few months of this season with a near one-to-one ratio.  He has since slipped and committed about fifty more fouls than blocks through almost sixty games.

So which NBA players are blocking more shots than fouls this year?  Just one man, Tim Duncan.  The Spurs center has 122 blocks and 118 fouls.

The only other players who are close to Duncan are Serge Ibaka and Anthony Davis.  Each has fewer than twenty more fouls than blocks.
