It took some time to get everything updated after the 2013-14 season ended, but all team and individual stats, records, standings, etc. have been finished to reflect the end of the season. We hope to switch the “records” section over to the new look of the web site, but that will probably take a couple months to fix. Yes those stats are totally accurate, they just open up in the old site format. Thanks for your support.
Sorry for the delay in getting the site updated, but all stats and box scores are current up through the Minnesota game on 11.10.13. Sorry we all have to still look that Dwight Howard picture below, I’ll try to update the posts on the site more often so it goes away soon. But rest assured no matter what story is on the site, the stats are always updated after each game, that’s the real purpose of this place to begin with.
The By The Numbers recap for the Lakers’ 95-90 win over the Brooklyn Nets at Staples Center on Tuesday night. The Lakers are now 6-5, and next play at Sacramento on Wednesday night.
The winning percentage of the Nets after the Lakers victory over them on Tuesday. It marks the first time the Lakers have beaten a team over .500 this season.
The amount of points the Lakers allowed on Tuesday night. They are now 4-1 when the opposition scores 90 points or less. Their only loss was the 84-82 defeat to San Antonio last Tuesday.
The amount of points the Lakers starters scored on Tuesday, led by Kobe Bryant’s 25 on 15 shots. Other than Darius Morris, the other four starters scored at least 17 points.
The percentage of shots the Nets missed on Tuesday…meaning of course they shot 41.5% from the floor, hitting 34 of 82 shots. Only one player who took more than three shots hit 50% of them…Brook Lopez at 11-18.
The percentage of free throws the Lakers hit on Tuesday, going 19-37. Yes a lot of that was Dwight Howard who shot a miserable 7-19 (36.8%), with a bunch of them in the 4th quarter as Brooklyn began to purposely foul him. Despite that, the Lakers still hunkered down and won the game.
The number of points the Nets scored in the second half. This marked the first time all season the Lakers have won a game they trailed at the half. Brooklyn led 57-56 at the break.
The number of points the teams’ two benches scored. Neither was very effective…the Nets had 17 from the reserves, and the Lakers just 10.
The number of assists the Lakers had on their 35 baskets. They only turned the ball over 11 times, and with that came a very solid assist/turnover ratio of 2.09. Ball movement wasn’t as crisp as it has been, but Brooklyn is a very good defensive team also.
The number of rebounds Dwight Howard grabbed on Tuesday. He’s now pulled down 73 boards in his last five games (14.6 rpg), and has seven double-doubles on the season…including five in a row.
The number of field goals the Lakers made in the 4th quarter against the Nets…and yet they won the game! Metta World Peace hit a three, Dwight Howard had a dunk, and Kobe had a baseline runner in the final two minutes. Other than that, it was all free throws…and lots of missed ones too. But it didn’t matter, they got the win.
See you after tomorrow’s game in Sactown.
The By The Numbers recap for the Lakers’ 119-108 win over the Houston Rockets at Staples Center on Sunday night. The Lakers are now 5-5, and next play home to Brooklyn on Tuesday night.
The number of points Pau Gasol has scored in the NBA, as he passed the 15,000 point mark on Sunday, making him the 10th foreign-born player to do so. He has scored 6,039 of those points with the Lakers.
The number of points the Lakers are averaging their last two games after having their first practice with Mike D’Antoni on Thursday.
The number of points the Lakers starters scored on Sunday, with all five in double-figures, led by Dwight Howard’s 28 to go along with 13 rebounds and three blocks.
Bernie Bickerstaff’s winning percentage as head coach, as he has gone 4-1 since Mike Brown’s dismissal. If Mike D’Antoni sits on the the bench Tuesday, Bernie will go down with the best winning-percentage in Laker coaching history. And if not for the the last 60 seconds against San Antonio he’d be a perfect 5-0.
The Lakers first half scoring output, their best of the season. Seems as if the Mike D’Antoni system is really paying dividends on the offense the last two games.
The number of rebounds Dwight Howard has pulled down the last four games, 14.5 per night. In the previous four, he’d only grabbed 32, including a season-low of seven against Detroit.
The Lakers’ shooting percentage on Sunday, as they blistered the nets all night long. Every Laker starter shot better than 50% from the field, except for Kobe…and guess what he shot…yeah only 50% at 9-18. It was that kind of night.
The number of triple-doubles Kobe Bryant has accomplished in his career, and his first since 2010. His line for the night…22 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists…and throw in three steals for good measure.
The number of fouls the Lakers committed on Sunday, as they continue to play solid defense without fouling. And eight of their 15 fouls came from two players on Sunday, Kobe and Metta World Peace who each had four.
For the second straight game, the Lakers won the turnover battle and committed just 13, with an assist/turnover ratio of 2.08. Great ball movement all night and lots of guys knocking down open shots.
See you after Brooklyn, on Tuesday.
