The Top 10 Boxscores of the Week

Welcome to the Top 10 Boxscore of the Week, a weekly segment on the Boxscore Geeks where we break down our favorite boxscores of the week. While we do use statistical criteria to guide our choices, this list is subjective. With that said, here's our list!

Matthew Stafford - Nov. 26th


  • 5 Touchdown Passes
  • 337 Yards on 27/38

Until football season is over, you might expect to see a few of these a week. Don't worry, they're relegated to the bottom of the list. Dave Berri, the father of "controversial" advanced stats, is a huge Lions fans. They're normally not that good. However, on Thanksgiving Stafford managed to get more touchdowns than all the other starting quarterbacks that day put together! Dave is now optimistic the Lions could pass the Packers! Keep dreaming Dave.

C.J. Anderson - Nov. 29th


  • 2 Touchdowns
  • 113 Yards on 15 carries

The Patriots are no longer undefeated! Without Peyton Manning, the Broncos have stayed strong and just got a major win thanks to Anderson's absurd rushing, including the walk-off touchdown. He also did it in the freezing cold! Go Broncos!

Kobe Bryant - Nov. 24th


  • 25 Minutes Played
  • 14 Field Goal Attempts
  • 2 Free Throw Attempts
  • 4 Points, 13.4% True Shooting
  • 6 Rebounds (0 Offensive)
  • 2 Assists
  • 0 Personal Fouls
  • 2 Steals
  • 3 Turnovers
  • 0 Blocks

I'm going to do my best to limit this list to one player/boxscore per game. And spoiler alert, every time the Warriors best the streak for undefeated start, I'll likely use a boxscore. Kobe gets the nod for the Warriors record 16th win. Truly horrendous shooting, a horrible assist to turnover ratio. He did rebound well, though, so, there's that.

T.J. McConnell - Nov. 29th


  • 22 Minutes Played
  • 5 Field Goal Attempts
  • 1 Free Throw Attempts
  • 7 Points, 64.3% True Shooting
  • 3 Rebounds (0 Offensive)
  • 6 Assists
  • 4 Personal Fouls
  • 0 Steals
  • 3 Turnovers
  • 0 Blocks

Why am I including T.J. here? Well, the 76ers kept up their losing streak but T.J. finally broke a streak of his own. In his first seventeen NBA games, he hadn't taken a free throw! At over four hundred minutes of play and over one hundred shots, that was absurd. He finally got a chance at the line on an and-one. Being rusty at these, he missed it. Expect T.J.'s first made free throw to make this list at some date in the future, it could be awhile.

James Harden - Nov 27th.


  • 40 Minutes Played
  • 28 Field Goal Attempts
  • 20 Free Throw Attempts
  • 50 Points, 67.9% True Shooting
  • 9 Rebounds (2 Offensive)
  • 8 Assists
  • 2 Personal Fouls
  • 0 Steals
  • 9 Turnovers
  • 0 Blocks

James Harden has been struggling this season. Maybe he's back! He put up a classic James Harden game of great three point shooting and getting to the line. Of course, it was against a pretty bad 76ers squad. Regardless, I'm comfortable saying Harden is back... never mind.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson - Nov. 28th


  • 30 Minutes Played
  • 3 Field Goal Attempts
  • 2 Free Throw Attempts
  • 6 Points, 61.5% True Shooting
  • 10 Rebounds (3 Offensive)
  • 1 Assists
  • 3 Personal Fouls
  • 5 Steals
  • 0 Turnovers
  • 1 Blocks

I won't lie; this is my favorite kind of box score. Rondae is quietly putting up a Rookie of the Year season. Don't worry, he won't win it. It's because he's a guard that rebounds like a big, and he is a stealing machine. In this game, he was also very efficient on limited shooting. This kind of box score won't stand out like some of the others on this list, but it was a key game that almost resulted in an upset to the Cavs.

Tim Duncan - Nov. 28th


  • 28 Minutes Played
  • 9 Field Goal Attempts
  • 0 Free Throw Attempts
  • 10 Points, 55.6% True Shooting
  • 18 Rebounds (5 Offensive)
  • 4 Assists
  • 3 Personal Fouls
  • 1 Steals
  • 1 Turnovers
  • 2 Blocks

Does Tim Duncan know he's 39 years old? A double-double with eighteen boards is pretty absurd. He also filled up the rest of the stat sheet. Tim Duncan is simply one of the best ever and is keeping it up somehow.

Draymond Green - Nov. 28th


  • 36 Minutes Played
  • 13 Field Goal Attempts
  • 7 Free Throw Attempts
  • 13 Points, 40.4% True Shooting
  • 11 Rebounds (2 Offensive)
  • 12 Assists
  • 4 Personal Fouls
  • 1 Steal
  • 3 Turnovers
  • 4 Blocks

An eighteen game win streak and Draymond Green seals it with a triple double! His shooting was subpar, and probably why the Kings looked like the had a shot for a little under a quarter. Regardless, Draymond did what Draymond does - everything! Also, Green became the first Warrior since Wilt to record back to back triple-doubles!

Draymond Green - Nov 27th


  • 33 Minutes Played
  • 4 Field Goal Attempts
  • 6 Free Throw Attempts
  • 14 Points, 100.1% True Shooting
  • 10 Rebounds (2 Offensive)
  • 10 Assists
  • 4 Personal Fouls
  • 1 Steal
  • 4 Turnovers
  • 2 Blocks

Alright, so this triple-double happened before the previous one, but I like it better. Green knocked a 40 point performance from Curry off this list with his game here. The Warriors got the best start to an NBA season, and Green got a triple double.

That's our list! Did we miss someone? Are any players too high? Well don't worry, we'll be back next week with another one. If you see any boxscores you think deserve consideration, leave them in the comments or tweet at myself (@nerdnumbers), Patrick (@nbageek), or Brian (@boxscorebrian) with hashtag #BSGTop10. Seeya next time!
