Scott Carefoot posted a fantastic new stat over at The Basketball Jones: the Triple-Zero (or as he also called it on Twitter, the "Trip-Zip"). It's pretty simple: 0 points, 0 rebounds, and 0 assists, with the catch being that it must happen in a minimum of 20 minutes of playing time. This feat has occurred only 31 times since 1986, and unsurprisingly, members of the Miami Heat not named LeBron, D-Wade, or Chris Bosh are masters of this. Joel Anthony had two in the month of January alone. I'm impressed, or disgusted. Not sure which.
Worst of the Night in Pictures:
Nationally Televised Games:
Heat at Magic, TNT, 8pm: LeBron's still upset with the Magic for questioning his competitiveness after last year's playoffs. I look forward to seeing LeBron put up 38 jump shots tonight in response.
Spurs at Lakers, TNT, 10:30pm: The Rodeo Road Trip rolls on with a visit to the Staples Center. Could be an interesting game...
All The Other Games:
Bucks at Warriors, 10:30pm: Pro tip: When Corey Maggette is your best healthy player, you are not likely to win many games. Milwaukee fans, you would be better off watching this movie instead, whatever it is.
