Last Night’s Numbers – 3/2/11

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.

  • With a FTR of 0.414 the Pacers gave themselves a 19 point advantage at the free throw line.
