Kia Surprising Stat: 1/11 vs. Dallas

Mavericks center Erick Dampier has set a Mavericks record by making his last 14 shot attempts. His accurate shooting has improved Dampier's field-goal percentage for the season to 68.8%. While he doesn't officially qualify for the NBA's leaderboard because he has not made enough field goals, Dampier is on pace to post the second-best field-goal percentage in NBA history, minimum 100 field-goal attempts.

Wilt Chamberlain's 72.7% shooting in 1972-73 is the only time in league history a regular player has made at least 70% of his shots. Chamberlain's 68.35 accuracy in 1966-67 currently ranks second all time.
