A daily glance inside the numbers from the world of sports:

• OK, be truthful. Who among you would have predicted that the Pistons (9-1 entering Friday's action), the Spurs (10-2), the Pacers (7-3) and the Heat (7-4) -- all playing at home -- would all wind up as losers on Friday night?

It was the first time in the NBA's 60-year history, at least 10 games into a season, that four teams that came into that day's action with a winning percentage of .600 or higher lost at home.
