LeBron James is in the midst of one of most dominant runs in NBA history — last night in a win over the Blazers he became the first player to score 30+ points on 60% shooting for six consecutive games. His offensive efficiency is on a level nearly indescribable with words and stats, but thankfully Brandon Jennings exists to help put everything into perspective.
Jennings, a fellow volume shooter (but not necessarily a volume scorer), is slumping. His field goal percentage over the last 10 games has dipped to 34%, way down from his career clip of 39% (which is terrible, anyway).
Here is the shot chart of two main scoring options having a very, very different rates of success, via Justin Phan.
- Inside WikiLeaks: A former employee shares what he learned about Julian Assange (including his beef with Hillary Clinton).
- One week into the fight to take back Mosul, expectations for quick success have clashed with the reality of a bloody struggle ahead.
- At least 13 people were killed and 31 others injured when a tour bus crashed into a semi-trailer near Palm Springs, California Sunday.
- An NFL player paid tribute to Harambe, the gorilla who died at a Cincinnati zoo, on his cleats.
