Last Night’s Numbers – 2/16/11

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.

Miami 110 – Indiana 103

  • Miami got 90 of their 110 points from Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James. They were a combined 35 of 65 from the field and 17 of 21 at the free throw line.
  • Indiana’s big three of Darren Collison, Danny Granger and Roy Hibbert were not nearly as productive. They combined for 39 points on 13 of 40 from the field and 12 of 17 at the free throw line.
  • Indiana had 8 of their shots blocked by the Heat and were just 15 of 30 on shots at the rim.

Chicago 106 – Charlotte 94

  • Derrick Rose had 13 assists for the Bulls, 6 of which went for layups or three pointers.
  • Gerald Henderson had a huge game for the Bobcats, scoring 22 points on a 77.0 TS%. He was 6 of 9 from the field and 10 of 12 at the free throw line.
  • Carlos Boozer finished the game with 16 points on a 71.4 TS%. However he was just 5 of 11 on shots inside of 10ft.

Oklahoma City 126 – Sacramento 96

  • Seven different players scored in double figures for the Thunder. They shot 50% for the game, a number which would have been even more impressive if Kevin Durant hadn’t gone 5 of 18.
