We are just a few games until the NBA Playoffs, so I found some interesting stats you didn't notice this season.
It's easy to follow Russell Westbrook' triple-doubles and Golden State Warriors' winning streaks, but it's always good to read some impressive NBA stats.
Check top 10 impressive stats this season.
1. LeBron James (36.2%) is a better three-point shooter than Carmelo Anthony (35.9%) this season. Also, when we look at their career stats, LeBron has 34.1% from the downtown, and Melo has just 34.6%. That is not a big difference, and fans perception is that Melo is a better shooter than LeBron, but not just for 0.5%.
2. New York Knicks want to build the roster around Kristaps Porzingis, but 7 ft 3 in center has only 7.2 rebounds per game. That is ridiculous.
3. John Wall (46) has more blocks than LeBron James (44) this season. King James is a solid blocker, but John Wall is the real threat for the opposite players.
4. Tom Thibodeau continues his usual strategy with the Timberwolves. Andrew Wiggins (37.2) and Karl-Anthony Towns (36.9) are amongst the top 5 players with most minutes per game this season. Damn, and Wolves are another year without an NBA Playoffs.
5. D'Angelo Russell has only 4.8 assists per game. If Luke Walton wants to create a similar system like Warriors have, then he should tell them that how to share the ball. Draymond Green has 7.1 assists per game, though.
6. LeBron James is one of the worst free-throw shooters this season. With only 67.4%, maybe Boston or Washington should think about "Hack-a-LeBron" strategy in the NBA Playoffs.
7. Jamal Crawford is arguably the best ballhandler in the league, but he has only 2.4 free-throws per game. Maybe he should think about how to draw the foul than how to dance on the court.
8. Milwaukee Bucks have a really tall starting lineup with Antetokounmpo, Parker, Middleton, Monroe... but they are the 2nd worst team in rebounding per game (40.4). Dallas is the worst tem in the league with only 38.4 rebounds per game.
9. Toronto Raptors have only 18.4 assists per game. James Harden has 11.2, John Wall has 10.7 and Russell Westbrook has 10.4 per game.
10. Minnesota Timberwolves and Chicago Bulls is averaging only 7.4 three-pointers per game. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have 7.6 per together, combined.
