1. Dwight’s Renaissance
D12 is averaging 15.5 points and 12.5 rebounds on 55% shooting in just under 30 minutes night. He is on pace to become the 5th player in NBA history to average at least 12 boards in 11 seasons (behind Chamberlain, Russell, Bob Pettit, and Dolph Schayes).
2. Dead-eye Ryan…
Ryan Anderson is shooting 77.8% from deep when being assisted by Chris Paul.
3. Guess how many times Russell Westbrook has ball-screened for Melo?
*Drum Roll* ZERO!
4. Speaking of Carmelo Anthony…
tonight’s start against Memphis is the 1000th straight for Carmelo, tying Patrick Ewing as the only players to start the first 1000 games of their NBA career.
PS: LeBron started 999/1000, while Tim Duncan and Buck Williams started 998.
5. The real KD?
Kris Dunn is averaging 17.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 7.6 assists while shooting 43% from deep.
