5 Awesome NBA Stats Of The Day– April 5, 2017
1. “Lucky” 13?
Shaun Livingston made only 12 three-pointers in his career and his 13th make couldn’t be any luckier.
2. Speaking of three’s, Pau Gasol is getting pretty good at it.
If the season ended today, Pau Gasol would have the best three-point percentage of any player in a single season in NBA history (min 50 3FG)

Not the case with Andre Roberson, though.
Andre Roberson shoots 25% on wide open triples. (NBA defines that as 6+ feet of space.)
That is ghastly.

3. Rudy Gobert…
…needs only eight rebounds to reach 1,000 for the season. If that happens, he will be the 12th player in NBA history to record 1,000 points, 1,000 rebounds, and 200 blocks for the year.
Last one to do it? Dwight Howard in 2009-10.
4. Injured Cavs?
The starting lineup of Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith, LeBron James, Tristan Thompson, and Kevin Love only played 27 games together this season.
5. 100th for Billy.
Tonight’s win was 100th for Billy Donovan. He becomes only 19th coach in #NBAHistory to get there in first 2 seasons. #ThunderBasketball pic.twitter.com/qhE9RCVxbJ
