Hornets Ten Game Winning Streak Box Score Bomb

Published: January 28, 2011

As the Hornets look ahead to Sacramento in hopes of extending their season high ten game winning streak, we are going to take a look back at how the individual players performed in their previous wins. These are all the typical box score numbers from the past 10 games.

Without further adieu, let’s jump right in.

A note- I’m missing nine points, and can’t figure out where they went. Every number I’ve checked so far in all statistical categories has been correct. Playing time is correct literally to the second. Whenever someone is off by nine in math or accounting it can be reasoned that they switched the last two digits of a number like “23” to “32”, but since I didn’t enter the data manually, that seems unlikely. Crunching this data took a lot longer than I thought it would and I literally can’t stare at spreadsheets any longer, so if you can find where the nine points went before anyone else, you win your choice of either a CP3 or a D-West bobble-head. It shouldn’t be too hard to do, but like I said, my brain can’t take it anymore. Or we can just ignore the nine points and move on with our lives, knowing that they are less than 1% of total points scored. Edit-  Thanks to peronas, the problem has been solved and all data is 100% accurate. He wins the bobble-head!
