Welcome all stat geeks! “Box Score Bulletin’” is sifting through, analyzing and summarizing all of the NBA box scores from the previous day and night, so you don’t have to! So sip your coffee and enjoy the good, the bad and the ugly…

Spurs (12-3) 118 @ Wizards (0-12) 92

  • Leading scorers: SAN – Boris Diaw 16, WAS – Jordan Crawford 19.
  • Talk about an unbalance of power here as the Spurs drop the Wizards to 0-12.
  • The Spurs had 7 players in double figures, shot 56.3% from the field and 56.5% from behind the arc.
  • Tiago Splitter shined for the Spurs with 15 points, 12 rebounds and 7 assists in only 23 minutes.
  • The Wiz were led by Jordan Crawford’s 19 points on 9-16 shooting.

Knicks (9-4) 89 @ Nets (9-4) 96 – OT

  • Leading scorers: NYK – Carmelo Anthony 35, BKN – Brook Lopez 22.
  • Brook Lopez continued his solid season with 22 points, 11 rebounds and 5 blocks.
  • Jerry Stackhouse turned back the clock to score 14 points off the bench and went 4-5 from three.
  • Assists: Deron Williams 14, New York Knicks 14. Pretty pathetic for an overtime game.
  • Tyson Chandler had a terrific game offensively with 28 points (on an insane 12-13 shooting) and 10 rebounds.
  • Carmelo poured in 35 points but shot only 11 for 25. He also had 13 rebounds.

Trail Blazers (6-8) 101 @ Pistons (4-12) 108

  • Leading scorers: POR – LaMarcus Aldridge 32, DET – Brandon Knight 26.
  • All of the Pistons starters scored in double figures, led by Knight with 26 points (9-17 FG).
  • Kyle Singler has been excellent since earning a starting spot. In this one he posted 16 points (6-7 FG, 3-3 3PT), 10 rebounds and 5 assists.
  • Despite having the flu, Aldridge put up 32 points, 10 rebounds and 3 blocks.
  • Two of the Blazers key guys, Nic Batum and Damian Lillard combined to shoot 6 for 27 (22%).

Bucks (7-5) 93 @ Bulls (6-7) 92

  • Leading scorers: MIL – Ersan Ilyasova 18, CHI – Richard Hamilton 30.
  • The Bucks came back from a 27-point deficit in this game to win by a point. The 30-12 4th quarter might have had something to do with it.
  • Was this the first Ersan Ilyasova sighting? After struggling all season, he put up 18 points and 6 rebounds in his first game off the bench.
  • Richard Hamilton was the man for the Bulls with 30 points on 12 for 24 shooting.
  • Carlos Boozer dropped in a double double of 19 points and 11 rebounds.

Cavaliers (3-11) 78 @ Grizzlies (10-2) 84

  • Leading scorers: CLE – Dion Waiters, Anderson Varejao 15, MEM – Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph 19.
  • Zach Randolph’s double double streak is broken! 19 points but only 8 boards for Z-Bo in this one. At 10-2, I’m sure the Grizzlies are panicking.
  • This game had a total of 28 assists between both teams.
  • Anderson Varejao continues his push toward the All-Star game with 15 more points and 22 more rebounds (now at 14.1 pts and 14.7 rebs for the season).

Bobcats (7-6) 69 @ Thunder (11-4) 114

  • Leading scorers: CHA – Jeff Taylor 10, OKC – Kevin Durant 18.
  • Yes, that score is correct.
  • The Bobcats of old? The Thunder only led by 40 at halftime and held the Bobcats to 24 points. That’s all.
  • Hasheem Thabeet’s best game as a pro? 13 points (5-6 FG) and 10 rebounds.
  • Jeff Taylor led the Bobcats with 10 points (the only player in double figures for them). What? Were you expecting Kemba to have 32 when the team scores only 69?
  • The ‘Cats shot a miserable 29.1% (23-79) from the field.

Nuggets (8-7) 103 @ Jazz (8-7) 105

  • Leading scorers: DEN – Kenneth Faried 21, UTA – Al Jefferson 28.
  • While Paul Millsap struggled, Big Al (28 pts, 10-15 FG) and Derrick Favors (19 pts, 7 rebs) picked up the slack for the Jazz.
  • Jamaal Tinsley: 35 minutes, 15 points (3-6 3PT), 6 assists.
  • The Nuggets shot 54.8% from the floor and still lost the game.
  • Ty Lawson dropped in 16 points and dished 9 assists.

Hornets (4-9) 105 @ Clippers (8-6) 98

  • Leading scorers: NOH – Greivis Vasquez 25, LAC – Caron Butler 33.
  • Without Anthony Davis, the Hornets shock the Clippers in LA. The making of 15 of 25 threes certainly helped.
  • Greivis Vasquez put up a solid 25 points (8-13 FG, 5-8 3PT), 10 assists and 6 rebounds.
  • Caron Butler was unconscious, especially from behind the arc where he went 9-15 and 12-24 overall in scoring 33 points.
  • Blake Griffin struggled with only 4 points on 1-9 shooting.
  • The Clippers made 18 out of 37 threes overall.
