Last Night’s Numbers – 1/24/11

This is Last Night’s Numbers, a daily feature where we run through the NBA games from the night before, highlighting one or two numbers I found particularly interesting from each game. All the stats are from Hoopdata’s box scores, which contain some additional advanced stats not available in traditional box scores.

Denver 121 – Indiana 107

  • Carmelo Anthony had his way with the Pacers’ wings. Anthony scored 36 points on a 61.6% TS%. He knocked dwon 6 of 8 three pointers, added 8 rebounds and didn’t turn the ball over once.
  • The Pacers’ big three, Darren Collison, Roy Hibbert and Danny Granger showed the effects of playing the second night of a back to back in Denver. They combined to shoot 10 of 45 from the field, 0 of 5 on three pointers and totalled just 9 rebounds and 6 assists between them.
  • Tyler Hansbrough had one of his best games as a pro, going for 27 points and 10 rebounds. Hansbrough was 6 of 10 on 16-23ft. jumpers and grabbed 5 of his 10 rebounds at the offensive end.
