Boxed Out: Season Finale

Boxed Out: A weekly look at statistical oddities around the NBA

We've finally reached the point in the season at which the calendar thins out just a bit too much to make goofing around with box scores grounds for a full-length feature each week.  So we present to you today the 2008-09 regular season's final edition of Boxed Out.

Dwight Howard, Monday at Boston: 6-for-12 from the field, 4-for-5 foul shooting, 16 points, 22 rebounds, 3 blocks

And he really didn't dominate that night.  Scary thought.

Lamar Odom, Monday versus Houston: 4-for-8 from the field, 1-for-6 foul shooting, 9 points, 5 rebounds

As LO goes, so go the Lakers?

Joe Smith, Tuesday versus Atlanta: 20 minutes, 0-for-4 from the field, 0 points, 2 rebounds, 3 fouls, plus-20

That's known as being in a good situation.

Nene, Tuesday versus Dallas: 8-for-12 from the field, 9-for-13 foul shooting, 25 points, 8 rebounds

Had his own personal playoff coming-out party early in this series.

Eddie House, Wednesday versus Orlando: 11-for-14 from the field, 4-for-4 on threes, 5-for-6 foul shooting, 31 points

Eddie Mansion.  Eddie Money.  Celtics win.

Carl Landry, Wednesday at LA Lakers: 7-for-9 from the field, 7-for-13 foul shooting, 21 points, 10 rebounds, 0 ejections

Not being ejected might have been the real achievement in this particular game.

Thomas Gardner, Thursday at Cleveland: 4-for-11 from the field, 3-for-5 on threes, 12 points, plus-12

M-I-Z!  Z-O-U!  Oh, whoops.  The Hawks lost by 20.

Von Wafer, Friday versus LA Lakers: 2-for-10 from the field, 4-for-5 foul shooting, 9 points

Rough night for Vienna Finger.  But he did draw a cool three-shot foul on Sasha Vujacic by leaning into him.

Brandon Bass, Saturday versus Denver: 2-for-5 from the field, 12-for-14 foul shooting, 16 points

He played 25 minutes and went to the line 14 times.  He's Brandon Bass!

Dirk Nowitzki, Saturday versus Denver: 33 points, 16 rebounds

His efforts in this series should be recognized at some point before his team's season expires.

LeBron James, Saturday at Atlanta: 15-for-25 from the field, 5-for-10 on threes, 12-for-16 foul shooting, 47 points, 12 rebounds, 8 assists

The rest of the Cavs totaled 50 points and seven assists.

Aaron Brooks, Sunday versus LA Lakers: 12-for-20 from the field, 4-for-9 on threes, 6-for-6 foul shooting, 34 points

That business of trading Rafer Alston continues to pay dividends.

Paul Pierce, Sunday at Orlando: 9-for-15 from the field, 8-for-9 foul shooting, 27 points, 4 assists

That fourth assist came on the screen-and-roll that won the game.  Also, the Infuriated Infant is a beast.

So there you have it, folks.  That wraps up this season's many editions of Boxed Out.  Thanks for sticking with us through the inaugural campaign, and feel free to shout out any notable stat lines we missed.

The Daily Babble comes at you this afternoon as a tribute to Glen Davis with extended game notes (bullet ponts-style) on tap for Tuesday.  Catch ya on the flip side of the meridian.
