Pistons Vs. Sixers: Advanced Box Score

The Sixers won all four of the four factors against the Pistons in their home opener, so it should come as no surprise that they won by a final of 96-73.

As always, the first stat we look at in the advanced box score is shot attempts at the rim. The Sixers converted 17 of 25; the Pistons converted 20 of 28. Once again the Sixers were out-shot by their opponent at the basket, and the Sixers only attempted two more free throws. I'd like to see the Sixers out-shoot their opponent at the rim more often as the season continues.

Another troubling trend is the shot selection of Jrue Holiday. Of his nine shots tonight, four were three point attempts, four were long two pointers and one was at the basket, and he attempted zero free throws. Jrue has shown he can get to the basket with relative ease when he's in attack mode, but he's settling for jumpers this season.

On the bright side Thaddeus Young temporarily bagged his jumper and attempted nine shots at the rim, converting seven.

Spencer Hawes continues to rebound at a ridiculous rate.
