NBA.com's John Schuhmann breaks down the numbers.

  • Top 10 Stat Lines of 2013-14

    Look near the benches after an NBA game, and youíll see the floor littered with stat sheets. These white pieces of paper usually show pretty unremarkable lines and instead are used to assess the team as a whole. But on some nights, individual stat lines stand out from the rest and allow us to see who is truly outstanding. Here are the top 10 stat lines of the 2013-14 regular season.
