Last Night’s Numbers – 2/10/11

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.

Detroit 103 – Cleveland 94

  • Cleveland shot 51.4% for the game. They still couldn’t come out on top because they turned the ball over on 18.5% of their possessions and allowed Detroit an ORR of 35.4%.
  • Detroit did most of their damage in the paint, going 21 of 35 on shots at the rim. Their 42 points in the paint dwarfed the 24 that Cleveland managed.
  • Will Bynum had 17 points on a 72.7 TS% for the Pistons. He also added 7 assists to just one turnover 26 minutes.

Indiana 104 – Charlotte 103

  • Roy Hibbert had 29 points on a 65.7 TS% in just 34 minutes. Hibbert also added 10 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks with one turnover.
  • Both teams had the same number of turnovers, 13. Indiana recorded an assist on 59% of their baskets compared to just 36.9% for the Bobcats.
  • Both teams made 20 shots at the rim. The Pacers assisted on 13 of those shots, the Bobcats just 4.

New Jersey 103 – New Orleans 101 (OT)

  • Both teams had the same number of turnovers, but New Jersey had a slight edge in ORR and FTR. New Jersey’s ORR was 31.5% compared to just 26.8% for New Orleans. The Nets FTR was 0.235 compared to just 0.188 for the Hornets.
  • Both teams had their long range shooting working. The Hornets made 9 of 17 three pointers, the Nets made 12 of 23.
  • David West was the star for the Hornets. West had 32 points on a 61.3 TS%. He also added 15 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals with 4 turnovers.

Orlando 99 – Philadelphia 95

  • Dwight Howard scored 30 points on a 70.2 TS%. He grabbed 17 rebounds, made 14 of his 19 free throws and added 2 steals and 2 blocks.
  • The Magic made 10 of 26 three pointers. Ryan Anderson led the way, going 4 of 6.
  • The 76ers were 9 of 29 on 16-23ft. jumpers. That’s probably too many attempts from that distance and certainly not enough makes.

Washington 100 – Milwaukee 85

  • With a FTR of 0.263 the Wizards gave themselves a 13 point advantage at the free throw line. The Bucks helped them out by only getting the line 12 times and making just 5.
  • The Wizards made 10 of 16 three pointers. Cartier Martin was 5 of 7 and Nick Young went 3 of 5.
  • Brandon Jennings scored 20 points for the Bucks but it took him 24 shots to do it. Jennings was 6 of 10 on shots at the rim and 3 of 14 from everywhere else on the floor.

San Antonio 111 – Toronto 100

  • San Antonio shot a terrific 58.1% for the game. They were 35 of 52 on shots inside of 10ft.
  • DeJuan Blair was a beast for the Spurs. Blair had 28 points on a 66.7 TS%. He was 13 of 19 inside of 10ft. and grabbed 11 rebounds, 4 at the offensive end.
  • Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan combined for 23 assists in the game. 12 of those assists went for layups.

L.A. Clippers 116 – New York 108

  • The Clippers recorded 28 assists on their 47 made baskets, an Ast% of 59.6%. Baron Davis had 16 assists, 12 of which went for layups or three pointers.
  • Timofey Mozgov had a big game off the bench for New York. Mozgov was 8 of 9 from the field, all of which came inside of 10ft. In total he scored 18 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in just 26 minutes.
  • New York was just 6 of 26 on three points. Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari were a combined 2 of 12.

Chicago 91 – Utah 86

  • Chicago had a 9 point advantage at the free throw line. This wasn’t due to a high number of free throws but due to Utah’s 11 of 21 performance.
  • This was billed as a terrific point guard matchup, but neither played particularly well. Derrick Rose shot 11 for 26, going 1 of 9 on 16-23ft. jumpers. Deron Williams was 5 of 13 from the field and turned the ball over 5 times to go with his 12 assists.
  • I’m sure Utah fans delighted in Carlos Boozer’s poor shooting performance. Boozer was 6 of 16 overall and just 3 of 10 on shots inside of 10ft.

Dallas 102 – Sacramento 100

  • DeMarcus Cousins had a monster game for Sacramento. Cousins scored 19 points on a 52.2 TS%. He added 15 rebounds in 38 minutes.
  • Jason Terry scored 22 points for the Mavs on a 64.4 TS%. He made all 7 of his free throws and the Mavs were +12 in his 31 minutes.
  • J.J. Barea scored 20 points on a 75.1 TS%. The diminuative point guard was 5 of 5 on his shots at the rim.

Golden State 116 – Denver 114

  • The Warriors were 14 of 28 on three pointers. Dorell Wright, Monta Ellis and Reggie Williams each made 4. 12 of their made three pointers were assisted on.
  • The Nuggets scored in the paint at will. They went 24 of 34 on shots at the rim. Nene and Carmelo Anthony combined for 24 points in the paint.
