Weird Trends:

No Blowouts? Out of the first 17 games, only 6 were won by over 10 points. Only 4 of the games today were by over 10 points. 6 games today were decided by 5 points or less.

Home Team Power! Of the first 17 games, only 2 home teams have lost. (NO losing to IND and UTA losing to OKC.) 

Low on the assists? In the first 17 games, only 6 players have at least 10 assists. One of those players (Ricky Rubio) got to 10 through Overtime.

One more reminder basketball fans, try not to take too much out of the first couple of games in the season. It's early in the season. DON'T PANIC OR CELEBRATE JUST YET!

Also, because it's Halloween on Thursday, here's some thing to creep you out! It's the Pelicans new mascot, Pierre!
