Excluding records of outstanding stars or rookies, these will be some statistics that few people pay attention to in the last NBA 2020 season.
Best matches of the season, excellent performances or records broken by rookies and top superstars.
NBA 2020 season has been postponed because of COVID-19. This is where fans can look back on what has happened at the American Professional Basketball League over the past few months such as the best matches of the season, excellent performances or records broken by rookies and top superstars.
But mixed in with it, a few interesting, stylish, unique, and extremely random statistical indicators also appear. To remind you a little and help fans remember NBA basketball, let’s take a look at some fun stats of Regular Season 2019-20.
1. NBA best throwers
The club 50-40-90 was born for NBA dedicated throwers, based on 3 FG finishes, 3 successful throws and a free throw rate (equivalent to 50% FG – 40% 3PT – 90% FT). NBA history has only witnessed 8 players who have ever reached the set of 50-40-90 in the whole season.
In Regular Season 2019-20, Khris Middleton came extremely close to this number and according to calculations by ESPN Stats & Info, the Bucks All-Star player only lacked one more successful finishing situation to join the club. 50-40-90.
Having the best season of his career, Middleton also owns a set of 49.9% FG, 41.8% 3PT and 90.8% FT.
2. The appearance of many excellent duo
This season, the NBA 2020 has the appearance of many excellent duo such as James Harden – Russell Westbrook (Houston Rockets), Jimmy Butler – Bam Adebayo (Miami Heat) or Kawhi Leonard – Paul George (LA Clippers). But which duo pass the ball to each other the most?
The answer is the superstar duo of the Los Angeles Lakers. According to statistics, LeBron James and Anthony Davis have created each other 172 times since the beginning of the season, 42 times more than the second-ranked players Damian lillard and Hassan Whiteside.
3. Impressive defensive stats
Defensive indicators will often be overlooked, especially when the NBA is heavily inclined to attack like it is now. However, impressive defensive stats, especially with rookie players will show a defensive superstar is being formed.
The Philadelphia 76ers rookie Matisse Thybulle became the first rookie in NBA history to have a 3.0% steal and block rate. The player born in 1997 of Philly is also leading the steal among new recruits and 5th in the number of successful blocks.
4. Referring to the “block”
Referring to the block, there is an interesting indicator of blockade in the NBA that is the number of successful blocking of 3-point balls. This season, New York Knicks youth striker Mitchell Robinson is top of the NBA for 3-point blocks. This is also the second consecutive year Robinson achieved this achievement.
Over the two seasons, Mitchell Robinson has blocked 40 points 3 points. Meanwhile, the entire remaining NBA player has not surpassed 24.
5. Who is the goaltending king in the NBA?
The answer is JaVale McGee, the comedy of Los Angeles.
Strangely, the goaltending story has been pursuing McGee ever since he started his career in Washington Wizards until now. During the 2019-20 season, JaVale McGee broke the goaltending rule 17 times.
If calculated throughout the career (from 2008 to 2020), this tall lanky man was blown to 240 for the same mistake. NBA 2020 history has only one player who has more goaltending errors than McGee, which is his teammate at the Lakers, Dwight Howard with 328 times.
