Why first 3 game days in May were special?

03 May

Since I started analysing box scores regularly for FB in 2004 I was surprised how often unique stat-lines occurred and it’s a series designed to celebrate that fact. The rules are simple: it has to be something that never happened in the last 20 playoffs [over 1500 games] and less than 25 times during last 25 regular season games [there were over 55000]. Incidentally it’s a tribute to for great tools.

James Jones had 25 points on 7 shots from the field
It happened only 9 times during last 25 RS –
You gotta love that kind of efficiency… at least I do even though it’s obvious how lucky that was ;-)

May 02, 2011
Derrick Rose had 27 FGA with 0 FTA and 9 Assists
It happened only 8 times during last 25 RS [including Rose!] –
IMHO it’s a testament how Bulls are unusually constructed offensively with all-Rose-offense.

Erick Maynor scored 15 points and had 3 steals even though he played only 15 minutes. It happened only 14 times during last 25 RS –
Well, what can I say other that “typical random explosion”?
But it definitely helped Thunder win.
