forcing turnovers

Chris Paul ranks exactly 100th all-time in the NBA for career steals.  Last night he passed Shaq’s former teammate Nick Anderson.  Now it starts to get really fun, next up:

Sleepy Floyd & Lindsey Hunter – 1120 each (tie-98th).  Then it’s Penny Hardaway and T-Mac.

Notice a Disney theme here?

The curious case of Chandler Parsons

Through 42 NBA games the Houston Rockets forward has hoisted 331 shots. He’s connected on 47% of these attempts which include 100 threes. Parsons has taken 44 free throws while making only 20 (46%). How can you explain a higher FG% than FT%?  This is especially hard to discern due to the fact that 30% of his FGAs have been from 3 pt land.
