      Happy New Year to everyone, and here's to some happy 2004 NBA
      moments!

      Just ran some clutch shooting analysis and among notable players,
      Kirilenko's performance seems about the best so far:

      ("clutch time" defined as 4th qtr/OT when neither team is ahead by
      more than 5 pts)

      19-31 from the field for 61% FG (66% eFG)
      23-27 from the line (85%)
      9 assists
      7 turnovers
      7 offensive boards
      ...a 153 "per 100 poss." theoretical rating

      only 42% of his buckets are assisted, so he's creating some shots on
      his own as well as getting some putbacks. Plus he's drawing the
      foul on 22% of his shots. Not to mention 8 blocks, 4 steals...

      Last season he wasn't as active in the clutch, what with Malone and
      Stockton around, but still had a respectable 48% eFG and drew fouls
      on 28% of his shooting attempts

      anyway, more data at http://www.82games.com/comm10.htm

      some other big names on the list: Bosh (thanks to strong offensive
      rebounding), Reggie Miller #3, Larry Hughes #5, Stojakovic #6 (a
      perfect 24-24 from the line), Radmanovic #7 (Dean is probably
      passing out), Carmelo at #9, Randolph as #10, Ming, Shaq, Artest,
      Garnett...

      Best stat though is Nick Van Exel: along with nice shooting (51%
      eFG) he has 15 assists with only one turnover!
