Last Night’s Numbers – 3/23/11

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.

  • The Bulls’ offense absolutely decimated the Hawks. The Bulls shot 54.5% from the field and made 10 of 18 three pointers.
