A True Game Summary?

LAKERS1-1It is amazing how many sports reporters manipulate the summary of a sports game. Not just reporters but “professional” analysts as well tend to select specific stats to use and always omit others in order that it looks like they know exactly what there talking about.

This evening I found an article on a very popular site that I felt was very biased in the way in which it was written. The reporter simply did not include the correct information to make his argument fair. With this in mind I dug up the stat sheet for the first two games between the Lakers and Magic to produce some other stats to show you below. It’s always good to hear the rest of the story.

  • Dwight Howard has only 6 field goals in the first two games combined.
  • Howard has been to the free throw line 7 more times than Kobe in these first 2 games.
  • Kobe has 40 more shots than Howard in the first 2 games of this series.
  • Both Kobe and Howard had 7 turnovers in game 2.
  • Rafer Alston A.K.A. Skip to my Lou and J.J. Reddick were 1 of 10 from three point distance in game 2.
