Sixers Vs. Hornets: Advanced Box Score

Picture_7_medium
The Sixers won two of the four factors against the Hornets, meaning the outcome of the game came down to which team made more plays down the stretch. Led by 14 points from Jrue Holiday, the Sixers outscored the Hornets 34-20 in the final quarter en route to an eight point victory.

Despite the great fourth quarter from Jrue, his shot selection early this season leaves something to desired. 10 of his 15 shots last night were from beyond 16 feet, and more than half his shots this season have come from beyond 16 feet. Luckily he's shooting a high percentage on long jumpers, but 56 percent from 16-23 feet is unsustainable. He's only averaging 2.2 attempts at the rim this season – down from 3.6 a season ago. That needs to change and he needs to attack the rim more.

Speaking of attacking the rim, second year player Evan Turner led the team with attempts at the basket last night with four. He's attempting 2.4 at the rim this season – shooting an absurd 92 percent – which is up from last year, as is his free throw rate and And1%.
