By the numbers 📊

121.5 offensive rating

Among five-man lineups which have played at least 90 minutes together, Phoenix’s combination of Ricky Rubio, Aron Baynes, Dario Saric, Devin Booker and Kelly Oubre have the highest offensive rating in the league, at 121.5. That group is also outscoring opponents by 12.8 points per 100 possessions, which means the rest of the 8-8 Suns’ combinations must suck.

37 percent; 51 percent

New York’s Marcus Morris is shooting 37 percent on 2-point shots this season and 51 percent on 3-point shots.

39 percent

In the first year of coach’s challenges, 39 percent of them have been overturned. There have been 143 overall, 56 of which have been successful.

101.5 touches

Luka Dončić leads all NBA players with 101.5 touches per game, five more than second-place LeBron James.

2.82 miles

No one in the league runs more, distance-wise, per game than Toronto’s Fred Van Vleet, who logs 2.82 miles per game.
