A Look at the Stats of the Past Decade in the NBA

The 2010s ended as the world welcomed in 2020. The National Basketball Association leaves behind a trail of statistics like the Golden State Warriors’ three NBA titles and a record-breaking 73-win season. Russell Westbrook became the first player since Oscar Robertson to average a triple-double per season. What other interesting statistical achievements took place in the past decade?

Most Wins

While the Warriors won the most NBA titles, they surprisingly did not win the most games in the past decade. That distinction goes to San Antonio, which won at least 47 games in each of the ten seasons from 2000 to 2019. The Spurs won 554 games. Another surprise – the Oklahoma City Thunder were second with 515 victories.

Most Points

There is no surprise here. James Harden is currently leading the NBA in scoring this season again and for the decade registered 19,578 total points. Harden has led the league in scoring in each of the past two seasons. Close behind in second place was LeBron James who scored 19,372 points.

It makes sense that Harden and James would be the highest scorers in the decade. They also led the decade in minutes played. James played 26,909 minutes and Harden played 26,634.

Double-Doubles & Triple-Doubles

The double-double was rare but players like Dwight Howard (417) and Andre Drummond (387) performed the feat almost nightly at times during the decade. These days, it’s the triple-double that wows everyone.

The most triple-doubles of the decade was recorded by none other than Westbrook, who had 143. No one was even close. James came in second with 62.

The 3

If anything really defines the decade of the 2010s, it might be the 3-point shot. More teams rely on it and more players are shooting them. The most made ‘3s’ during the decade were by Golden State’s Steph Curry who hit 2,452 shots from behind the arc. Harden was second with 2,163.
