I live-blogged this game but had to bow out mid-way through the 3rd…
Just a quick look at Houston Rockets guard Trevor Ariza’s scoring efficiency (in terms of true shooting%) over the course of this season:
The red line represents league average true shooting% (about 54%). It is rare indeed when Ariza is able to match this number; he has done it only 9 times this season.
I live-blogged this game. It was pretty enjoyable for me, so I will see how it is received before I determine whether I continue in this format. Your feedback is much appreciated.
I wanted to see how Houston Rockets forward Carl Landry compared to some of the top power forwards in the league.
Courtesy of basketball-reference, I thought this was interesting. These are the head-to-head numbers for Houston Rockets point guard Aaron Brooks and Denver Nuggets point guard Chauncey Billups. When Rafer Alston was still around, a big part of the argument against Brooks was that he wouldn’t fare well against bigger point guards like Billups.
