    Bitches Brew is one of my favorite albums to listen to.

    I LOVE Kind of Blue. In my early 20s I did some traveling far from home, and I only had a handful of CDs (man, why couldn't MP3 players had got big just a few years earlier! ).

    I would listen to that, The Essense of Dave Brubeck (a compilation album), and a couple of others over and over. .and over. KoB especially reminds me of that time.

    Some tidbits from screwing around on there:

    Steve Blake leads the league in FT assists per minute (i.e. he passes to guys that get immediately fouled the most).
    Steve Blake is #3 in the league in terms of passes per minute (i.e. he is a hyper passer)

    Jahlil Okafor has had his shot blocked 26 times already

    How does Blake compare to Pepe Sanchez?

    Warning, non-sortable columns after link!
    Quarter based team performance

    Houston and Washington are the only two teams that on average, are winning every quarter except the 4th. And, they both average strong first periods.

    4th quarters are situational though. Hanging onto a lead by burning clock or gambling to catch up both make sense, but affect the average negatively. Gsw have a worse performance in the 4q for example.

    Yeah, but for Houston, it is actually as one may superficially read into it. They keep having leads, and then blowing them in the 4th. I just heard the whole rant from my Houston-fan friend yesterday over beers and board games.

    I haven't been paying attention to Washington, though, can't say anything for that one.

    Looks to me that we're pretty good in the third quarter. I like that. Come out after halftime like a house on fire.

    Yeah, it's good to see. That is what the eye test is telling us, too. Other then that west coast trip, seems like we have generally came out rocking in the 2nd half. And, it seems like defenses eventually wilt form the effort it takes to muscle up against 'Dre deep into a game. His strength and energy are too much for opponents maybe/I hope.

    That's a welcome change too. Last several years, we would be doing ok in the first half just to collapse in the most spectacular fashion in the 3rd quarters.

    Following on from a recent game thread where it was mentioned the Pistons are at the bottom in 3's and FT's, I created a simple scatter chart plotting out 3 point attempts and FT attempts for all the NBA teams.

    We don't shoot 3's and we don't get to the line. In today's modern NBA, living and dying by the 2 pointer is not a modern day concept.

    Brooklyn seems to be an anomaly.

    Yeah I noticed that, but these are attempts. They are 4th in 3PA but only 27th in 3P%. They are trying to play modern, but don't have the horses.
