Research Notes

  • Kobe Bryant made 23 passes which led directly to Laker scoring opportunities (FGA/foul drawn/TO). He had nine assists and one secondary assist*. The Lakers went 10-of-20 on his passes for 21 points. However, of the 10 misses, five of them were unguarded catch-and-shoot opportunities.*Similar to hockey assists

  • Pau Gasol was responsible for 32 of the 86 points against the Grizzlies Friday. In 36 minutes of play, he initiated the offense on 25 of the 59 possessions. Gasol scored 19 points, assisted on three 3-pointers, a pass that led to Dwight Howard going 1-of-2 from the line and a secondary assist* to Earl Clark for another 3-pointer. *Similar to hockey assists
