    Weird, I wonder what happened here.

    I had it right the first time, with "a Ilgauskas possession".

    But then I made a post correcting myself, saying that it should be "an Ilgauskas possession", even though that's an correct correction?

    And now I'm saying I had it right the first time.

    If a player didn't play, I didn't count that game in the fourth number. If he did play, but did not earn a MVP1-HM7 mention, it was reflected in that number. That number is actually negative on my Excel spreadsheet, but either way ZERO would be the best number to be. Ingles was Zero for a long time, so I thought he'd win Mr. Dependable or Mr. Reliable. Gobert's only Fourth Number qualifications were one he played only two minutes and another where he did nothing really.

    Thanks.

    Which games does Ingles have his 6 2nd place votes?

    Here are the games I gave him Second Place. I admit that subconsciously/consciously I first look at:

    1. Points
    2. Assists
    3. Well-Rounded Production
    4. Shooting Percentage.

    If I saw the game or read something, things can change. For example, Sefolosha had a big stop on James this last game.

    I don't know what you are talking about. It should be "an Ilgauskas possession." And it should be, "a correct correction," not "an correct correction."

    That's a really good line from Rubio.

    I'm glad that Johnson earned a MVP, just because it brings back good memories of what he did in the playoffs last year.

    0 turnovers from Johnson is really cool.

    @MHSL82, I've liked your analytical contributions this season. You haven't done Top Games or MVPs in past seasons.

    I've enjoyed them this season.

    Can you use basketball-reference and find:

    1) What game did any Jazz player in franchise history have the best 100% FT game (with the most FT makes)?

    2) What games did any Jazz player in franchise history have 100% FTs and 100% FGs?

    I heard on the radio today that Adrian Dantley had a game on this date in the 80s where he went 27 - 28 from the foul line.

    Maybe it's not 100%, but it's impressive.

    Sefolosha just went 100% in everything for the game!

    I've cooled off Joseph English.

    He hasn't had a 3 steal game since November 10.

    He started the year with several 3 steal games.

    @nuraman00 , how can I format this better? I didn't want to bold the comments after the stat line and want to put the stat line first. But I'm not always going to have comments, so I don't want to built it in. Too much copy and pasting to add more formalities. Bold or not? Italics or not? Neither?

    Ended up not giving it to him. He has to protect the ball and score more, too. He'll do it before the season is over.

    It seems like you've tried BOLD, Italic, and normal font, just on this page alone.

    Let's do BOLD.

    Your first paragraph was because I did that on purpose. I wanted you to see the differences. But hearing it from someone else, confirms that bold is best.

    Should I unbold the title of "MVP1:," etc.?

    Udoh's line was like a Ben Wallace line. Very nice.

    There weren't many rebounds to be had. Agree with your rankings and analysis, though.

    Normally I dislike it when someone plays 41 minutes and has 1 rebound.

    Who was guarding Bogdanovic? Why was he almost the best rookie on the court? I know he's experienced because of his international play, but can't allow another rookie on the opposing team to have that kind of a game.

    I would dock some points from Mitchell or Hood, whoever was guarding him.

    Even if Bogdanovic had 5 turnovers, that was too good of a shooting night for there not to be penalties.

    I did like 3 steals by Mitchell.
