NBA adjusts several ‘final’ stats from Hawks’ victory over Wizards
The NBA has changed several numbers after a rough night for the stats crew at the game between the Atlanta Hawks and Washington Wizards.
It turns out Wizards guard Bradley Beal didn’t commit a career-high seven turnovers; He had only five. Teammate John Wall had seven instead of six. And the Wizards had 20 giveaways instead of 25.
Inaccurate numbers were released throughout Tuesday night’s game, a 106-102 win for the Hawks. "Final" stats also contained inaccuracies.
Among other changes made Wednesday: Atlanta’s Kyle Korver went 0 of 4 from the field, not 0 for 3. And Washington’s Paul Pierce was 6 for 16, not 6 for 14.
