Stat Line Of The Night — 2/14/12 — Jason Spezza & Ilya Kovalchuk
Stat Line Of The Night — 2/15/12 — Josh Smith
Oftentimes, when one player on a basketball team is doing all of the scoring and rebounding, someone else is recording all of the assists. And when one player is recording all of the assists and steals, someone else is usually doing the rebounding and blocking. Well last night during a game against the Phoenix Suns, Josh Smith was doing it all for his Atlanta Hawks.
It is rare to see one player lead his team in every major statistical category during a basketball game, but Smith did just that, as he recorded 30 points, 17 rebounds, 7 assists, 4 steals and 3 blocks. That all-around performance from the 26-year-old forward not only helped his team edge the Suns 101-99, but it also earns him “The Stat Line of the Night” for Wednesday, February 15, 2012.
