    we missed a lot of jumpers but we shot tentatively. even, telfair shot with more purpose last night than our perimeter players. also, camby was a non factor in 2nd half. i think this was the kind of game wehere we really miss having an offensive player of martin's caliber.

    League average 3 point percentage is .348. The Rockets are currently tied for 10th in the league at .360.

    The Rocket have shot at or above .350 from behind the arc 31 times. In those games they are 19-12. In games where they shoot worse than that, they are 13-15. In other words a statistical barometer, it is not statistically relevant.

    Of course, if they shoot better from behind the arc, it is easier to win, but it is not a guideline.

    It is actually better than that but hey.

    How did Chicago get Rose? They luck into it!

    How did we get Yao? That is right, luck.

    It has been ten long years since Yao. Time for another one!

    But why would you even look at that cut off? It is horribly unrealistic.

    The best team in the NBA is only shooting 3 pointers at .389, and only 23 qualified players shoot 3 pointers at that rate, only Rockets only have 1 player (Bud at #23) in that group.

    The .350 cut off is because the league average is .348 and the Rockets had no games between .348 and .350.

    Does anyone have the foggiest notion if that cat is going to return in time for the playoffs?
