Research Notes

  • In the four games since Kirk Hinrich's injury, the Bulls have shot 38.4 percent from the floor. Luol Deng has felt the extra attention from opposing defenses, averaging 0.84 points per possession in the last four games compared to 0.90 in Chicago's first 59 games. For context, Deng's average over the last four games would rank him 279th on the season, tied with Josh Smith and Pablo Prigoni. Chicago is 1-3 over that span.

  • Steve Nash scored 16 points in Sunday's win, 10 of which came as the pick-and-roll ball handler. Nash was 5-of-7 from the floor Sunday off pick-and-rolls, more than doubling his season average on those plays (4.6 PPG).

  • Dwight Howard finished with 21 rebounds Sunday, the first player to record at least 20 rebounds against the Bulls with Joakim Noah since Brendan Haywood on Jan. 15, 2010. The Lakers as a team posted an offensive rebound percentage of 40.4 percent, second highest allowed by Chicago this season.

  • It's been a Hollywood makeover indeed...through January 24th, the Lakers sat in 12th place in the Western Conference with a 17-25 record. But since, they've gone 16-6, and now own sole possession of the 8th seed. It's the first time L.A. owns sole possession of a top-8 spot out West since December 1st.

  • This is Dwight Howard's 62nd 20-rebound game. Since his rookie season (2004-05), he has more 20-rebound games than any other two players in the NBA.
