The Top Ten 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! These are from games from 1/9/17 through 1/15/17.

1. Anthony Davis put up the best game of the week in under thirty minutes! His forty points and eighteen rebounds were enough for an easy shellacking of the Knicks. When healthy Anthony Davis is one of the best players in the league.

2. Gordon Hayward was an amazing scorer. He missed a shot from the line, from two, and from three, and made everything else for a great game. Tack on nine boards and he was a big reason the Jazz took down the defending champs.

3. Commenter JGlanton had this to say:

Deandre Jordan's game on 1/14 against the Lakers is going to get on the next list. 24 points on 12/13 shots, 21 rebounds, 2 blocks

Good prediction! Thnks to wmcguire18 for suggesting DeRozan's game on the 10th, but he was just off in a week of some great games.

4. Mike Dunleavy's performance in twenty-three minutes was remarkable. Even better, he did it after the Cavaliers traded him away for an also-ancient Kyle Korver. We'll see if he keeps making them regret it this season.

5. DeAndre Jordan makes the list twice! He only put up ten points, but I'm a sucker for twenty rebound games. Three blocks and two steals were icing on the cake to take down the Magic.

6. Who's a sucker for twenty rebound games? I am! Hassan Whiteside put up a great game, but it wasn't enough to take down the Warriors. Still, a great game from Whiteside and a loss from the Heat is nothing new this season.

7. James Harden and Russell Westbrook racked up the triple-doubles this week. Still, performance wise most weren't that great. I gave the best one of the week to Harden for this week. Harden's forty point game in a win against the Bobcats was pretty solid.

8. I like to keep a spot open for the "top rookie game." As Embiid is on a minutes restriction, it's been rough. Mindaugas' nineteen point game helped the Knicks take down the Bulls. We'll see if I keep the rookie spot next week.

9. Sometimes I'll give a few spots to bad games. John Wall's twelve missed twos, five missed threes (which was every attempt) and going fifty percent from the line to only get 9 points earns a spot for the worst scoring performance of the week. Understandably the Wizards fell to the Celtics.

10. The coveted tenth spot! Darrun Hilliard put up the worst game of the week! At least he had a three to one assist to turnover ratio to go along with horrible shooting and three fouls. It's not like the Warriors needed him to play this bad to win, but it did help it stay a blowout.

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.
