1/13/20: By the numbers


The Memphis Grizzlies (!) are 18-22, and currently hold the eighth spot in the Western Conference playoff picture. Ja Morant (18 points, seven assists, 48 percent shooting, 39 percent from 3) is already a borderline All-Star. In related news, this is terrible for the Celtics.

21 points

After missing 26 games because of a search for a higher meaning in this crazy world shoulder impingement, Kyrie Irving played last night against the Hawks, scoring 21 points on 10 of 11 shooting.


Last week, a Knicks fan nailed a halfcourt shot. His prize? $1,000 worth of scratch tickets. A degenerate’s dream.

16.5 points

Al Horford, in two games since Joel Embiid’s finger injury: 16.5 points, seven rebounds, 5.5 assists, 41.7 percent from 3

Al Horford, before those two games: 34 games, 12.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 34.1 percent from 3

71.2 percent; 85.3 percent

Chris Paul and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander are shooting 71.2 and 85.3 percent, respectively, from 2-point range in clutch situations; they’ve also both played 28 games in the clutch, tied for most in the league.

(Clutch situations: Within five points in the final five minutes of a game)
