1/2/20: By the numbers 📊

86 games

Last night, Carmelo Anthony dropped 26 points in his return to Madison Square Garden. He also had zero assists, the 86th such game for the future Hall of Famer, with 20 coming in his disastrous season with Oklahoma City.

304-450; 304-451

Starting with the 2010-11 season and ending with games played on Dec. 31, 2019, the Nets had a 304-450 record and the Knicks had a 304-451 record. The Nets made the playoffs four times, winning one playoff series, while the Knicks have made it three times and also won one playoff series.


Chris Paul and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander are a combined 53-of-90 in “clutch situations,” which is defined as the last five minutes of games with the score within five points. The Thunder are now 18-15 and firmly in the West’s playoff picture.
