Henderson

HENDERSON SCORES THE FINAL SEVEN POINTS

From Elias: Gerald Henderson scored the final seven points of the game in the Bobcats' win over the Bucks. It was the third time this season that a player scored the final seven or more points of a game, all three happened this month: Brook Lopez scored the final seven points of the game in 94-90 win for the Nets over the Warriors on March 9; and Jason Kidd scored the final eight points in the Mavericks' 91-83 win at Phoenix on March 27.

The last NBA player to score the final seven or more points of a game in a one-point win was Kobe Bryant in a 107-106 overtime victory for the Lakers at Milwaukee on December 16, 2009.

BUCKS SCORE UNDER 90 POINTS AGAIN

From Elias: The Bobcats beat the Bucks 87-86 Monday night. It was the 34th time this season that the Bucks failed to score 90 points, the most in the NBA this season and a franchise record. Milwaukee's previous record for most games scoring under 90 points in a season was 27 in 1997-98. The Bucks are 2-32 in those 34 games.

SPURS LOSE FOURTH STRAIGHT

From Elias: The Spurs are the fourth team in NBA history to lose four straight games despite being at least 40 games over .500 at the start of the losing streak. The 1969-70 Knicks were 60-18 before losing their final four games of the season; the 1977-78 Trail Blazers were 53-12 before a four-game losing streak and the 2009-10 Cavaliers were 61-17 before losing their last four games of the season.

INDIANA SETS PACE WHEN IT SCORES 100

From Elias: The Pacers' winning percentage in games in which they score at least 100 points (.711, 27-11) is 549 points better than their winning percentage when they score less than 100 points (.162, 6-31). Only two NBA teams have a larger difference in winning percentage in games in which they score 100+ points compared their winning percentage when they score less than 100 points: Milwaukee (+.556) and Denver (+.555).

YOUNG BRINGS BACK MEMORIES OF BOBBY JONES

From Elias: Thaddeus Young came off the bench to score 21 points and block four shots in the 76ers' win at Chicago. The last Philadelphia non-starter to score at least 20 points and block four shots in a road game was Bobby Jones on December 18, 1979 at Detroit (22 points, four blocks).

Anthony

`MELO AND AMAR'E: KNICKS DYNAMIC DUO

From Elias: Carmelo Anthony scored 39 points in the Knicks' win over the Magic after scoring 36 points against the Bobcats in his previous game. Anthony is the second Knicks player to score at least 35 points in back-to-back games this season. Amar'e Stoudemire did it in November. It's only the second time in Knicks history that they had two players do that in the same season: Allan Houston and Stephon Marbury was the other dynamic duo in 2003-04.

New York Knicks, Orlando Magic

JAZZ LOSE AT HOME TO WIZARDS

From Elias: The Jazz lost a home game to the 17-55 Wizards. It was only the second time in team history that the Jazz lost a home game to a team at least 38 games under .500. The other instance was to the 20-59 Clippers on April 18, 1989. Utah is now 23-2 in such games.
