The Stat Line of the Night – 1/18/10 – Luis Scola

Luis ScolaThe Houston Rockets are not known for dominating individual performances.  Their success on the court this season has come largely without a star or alpha-dog of any kind.  As a team, they have come together on both ends of the floor in a way that is fun to watch.  On this night, however, one man did stand out far above the rest.  His name is Luis Scola and his monster double-double helped the Rockets put down the Bucks in overtime.

The Bucks played decent basketball with Andrew Bogut contributing a double-double of his own.  Although they were able to push it to overtime, they could not get over the hump in Houston.  Scola was superb in the contest, going 10-18 from the field and scoring 27 points.  Not only was he an extremely efficient scorer, he also grabbed 15 rebounds.  Although he did have a standout performance, as usual many other Rockets stepped up, with 4 others in double figures in points.

With the loss of Yao and T-Mac, Scola has been called upon to shoulder more of the offensive load this season, and he has risen to the occasion with 14.7 points per game.  Last night’s game was a great example of his ability to handle the added responsibility on the offensive end, and as a result he earns “The Stat Line of the Night”.
