The following is taken from the rockets forum, what does the field mean here?
...Where to begin? The Rockets played terrific ball on the offensive end, hitting over 48% from the field and 50% from distance, but there were three guys in this one who rose above the rest: Artest, Yao Ming and Aaron Brooks.
48% of hits were near the competitors' area
and 50% were from long distance.
