- As noted in our recap, the Bucks shot 19/23 (.827) at the rim while the 76ers shot 11-23 (.479) at the rim, rather unbelievable splits, especially considering that Philadelphia entered the game as the best team in the NBA at shooting at the rim (.720). Also sort of odd to see these numbers and then hear the announcer in the highlights repeatedly reference how the lane was open for the Sixers (as opposed to the Bucks) to drive and score all day. In any event, the home team made up that difference and then some by making 11-23 (.478) three-pointers, compared to 3-14 (.214) for the visitors.
- Continuing in the theme of statistical oddities, Andrew Bogut notched a season-high 20 points (also tied season highs with 4 assists and 3 blocks) and made 7-7 shots at the rim, but despite all that action around the hoop did not make a free throw (0-1).
