Elias Says ...

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

• The Hornets scored only 16 points in the second half against the Clippers on Wednesday night. Kobe Bryant has scored at least 16 points in a quarter 23 times this season.

Allen Iverson had 40 points and 10 assists in Philadelphia's win at Houston. It was Iverson's third game with at least 40 points and 10 assists this season after recording only four such games previously in his NBA career. Iverson's seven career 40/10 games are the most for any player since he entered the league in 1996. Next-most over that 10-season period are five for Stephon Marbury and four for LeBron James.
