An Uncontested Layup

SportsCenter anchor Scott Van Pelt narrating the Spurs-Suns highlights:

“[Amare] Stoudemire had 17 of his 38 points in first half.” (emphasis his)

17/38 is 44.7%, which means Stoudemire had about half of his total points in the first half, which is completely unspectacular. Emphasis = unnecessary.
