Clippers shoot poorly, but Hedo was worse

The Los Angeles Clippers shot a season-low 33 percent from the floor, and have lost eight straight games. The Indiana Pacers on the other hand, made 14-for-26 three-pointers, the second time this season they've shot better than 50 percent from behind the arc (they made 16-of-30 threes against the Denver Nuggets on Nov. 9).

The Phoenix Suns Hedo Turkoglu went 0-for-8 Thursday against the Orlando Magic, the second-worst shooting night of his career in terms of most attempts without a make.

Hedo Turkoglu Career

From Elias Sports Bureau:

Orlando’s starters made 31-of-44 field goals in the Magic’s win over the Suns on Thursday (70.5 percent). That’s the second-highest shooting percentage for any starting five in any game in Orlando’s history. On April 7, 2007 the Magic’s starting quintet of Hedo Turkoglu, Tony Battie, Dwight Howard, Grant Hill and Jameer Nelson went a combined 25-or-32 (78.1 percent).

LAST NAME

Dwight Howard played the 500th game of his NBA career and grabbed his usual dozen rebounds in Orlando’s victory over Phoenix on Thursday night. Howard has pulled down more rebounds (6,310 to be exact) than any other active player recorded in his first 500 games. That translates to a 12.6 per game average – the highest rebounding average for any player at the 500-game mark since Moses Malone’s 15.0 in 1983.
