Numbers to know: 2017 Eastern Conference All-Stars

Coverage of 2017 NBA All-Star Game

It's been a heck of a season for NBA statistics. We're on track to have the best offensive season of the last 40 years, with the league averaging 106.0 points per 100 possessions. Teams are taking 3-pointers at a record rate for the fifth straight season and turnovers are at an all-time low.

With the league-wide offensive revolution, there have been some ridiculous numbers put up by individuals. Russell Westbrook is averaging a triple-double. James Harden and Draymond Green have each had triple-double lines that we've never seen before. Stephen Curry finally broke the single-game record for threes and Isaiah Thomas is the first player (since we started tracking by-quarter stats) to average more than 10 points in a quarter. And none of those guys has the season high for points this season.

So there's a lot to celebrate and plenty of numbers beyond those to digest as we come to New Orleans for All-Star 2017. And as we've done for the last few years, we'll highlight some well and lesser-known numbers for the 25 All-Stars on the East and West rosters.

The Western Conference roster includes the two guys who have won the last three MVP awards, as well as another two guys who have been the front-runners for the award for much of the season.

-- Clutch time = Last five minutes of the fourth quarter or overtime with a score differential of five points or less.
-- Effective field goal percentage = (FGM + (0.5 * 3PM)) / FGA
-- True shooting percentage = PTS / (2 * (FGM + 0.44 * FTA)))
