DECADE IN REVIEW
There were seven different franchises with at least one NBA championship in the 2010s, Golden State leading the way with three followed by Miami with two.
San Antonio was one of the five clubs with one — but a case could be made for the Spurs being the team of the decade.
The Spurs had the most wins in the 2010s, whether just counting the regular season or adding both the regular season and the playoffs together. Oklahoma City was No. 2 in regular season wins, followed by Golden State, Houston and Miami.
The fewest wins? That would be Sacramento, followed by Minnesota, Brooklyn, Phoenix and New York. But a special decade-long award for futility should go to Detroit and Sacramento — the only teams in the NBA that didn’t win a playoff game in the 2010s. The Pistons have lost 14 consecutive postseason contests since winning Game 4 of the 2008 Eastern Conference finals.
Other high marks from the 2010s:
Most points — Devin Booker scored 70 points for Phoenix against Boston on March 24, 2017.
Most rebounds — Kevin Love had 31 for Minnesota against New York on Nov. 12, 2010.
Most assists — Rajon Rondo had 25 for New Orleans against Brooklyn on Dec. 27, 2017.
Most steals — Lou Williams had 10 for the Los Angeles Clippers against Utah on Jan. 20, 2018, and Draymond Green had 10 for Golden State against Memphis on Feb. 10, 2017. Green’s was part of a most unique triple-double; he also had 11 rebounds and 10 assists, but only four points.
Most 3-pointers — Klay Thompson made 14 for Golden State against Chicago on Oct. 29, 2018.
Most blocks — Poor Chicago. JaVale McGee had 12 for Washington against the Bulls on March 15, 2011, and Hassan Whiteside had 12 for Miami against the Bulls on Jan. 25, 2015.
