1.) By A Wide Margin
As in wiiiidddddeeeee!
James Harden is the league’s leader for total points scored at 2,006. The second behind him is Paul George at 1,650, which is a 356-point gap. And if you’re wondering how many of those are free throws– it’s 546, which is about 27% of his total point production.
2.) All-Star Lineup?
On paper, a lineup of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, and DeMarcus Cousins may very well be the best. It seems like defenses are adjusting pretty quickly though.
In their first two games, the 5-man lineup of Curry, Thompson, Durant, Green and Cousins outscored opponents by 35 points. Since then, that 5-man lineup has been outscored by 36 points (NBA Advanced Stats). pic.twitter.com/xbPJIhr4Av

3.) Ersan, Blake, and Kyle
Can you guess the category which has Ersan Ilyasova, Blake Griffin, and Kyle Lowry as the league leaders? Answer: Total charges drawn where Ilyasova had 39 while Griffin and Lowry have 25 and 19, respectively.
4.) CP3’s Milestone
Chris Paul joins John Stockton, Jason Kidd, Magic Johnson, and Oscar Robertson as the fifth player with career totals of at least 17,000 PTS, 9,000 AST, & 4,000 REB. pic.twitter.com/K5hYbtXd25

5.) The Manimal’s Three-Stroke
Kenneth Faried has made more threes as a Rocket (5 makes in 14 games) than his previous eight seasons (3 makes in 453 games). Could it be the Mike D’Antoni influence?
