Dumpy reluctantly takes a look at the numbers behind the loss to Phoenix. Among other things, he calculates that the Nets assisted on just 33% of their field goals, and have still yet to win when this metric is less than 50%. Also, he shows that each of the Nets starters earned dismal offensive ratings for the game. However, be prepared to smile when you check out Marcus' and Hassan's numbers. Meanwhile, NBA.com offers a new perspective on the assists-to-field goal stats, finding it wanting.
