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.
Chicago 84 – New Jersey 73
- Deron Williams did not have a strong game for New Jersey. He handed out 11 assists but shot 1 of 12 from the floor, went 1 of 6 at the rim and turned the ball over 4 times.
- The Bulls held the Nets to 8 of 18 shooting at the rim. Only three Nets managed more than a single attempt at the rim.
- The Nets only hit 3 of 19 three pointers. Deron Williams, Travis Outlaw, Sundiata Gaines and Jordan Farmar combined to go 0 of 9.
New York 120 – Memphis 99
- New York made 20 of 36 three pointers. Toney Douglas his 9 of 12 and five other Knicks made at least 2.
- The Grizzlies made just 14 of their 25 shots at the rim. O.J. Mayo and Tony Allen were a combined 3 of 8.
- The Knicks hot shooting counteracted their weak performance on the glass. The Knicks grabbed just 46% of the available rebounds with an ORR of just 15.8%.
Portland 111 – Cleveland 70
- The Cavaliers turned the ball over on 22.6% of their possessions and recorded and assist on just 28.6% of their made baskets. If you’re keeping track at home that’s 19 turnovers to 6 assists for the game.
