In the words of Mos Def from his song Mathematics, "it's really just a numbers game". Stats rule everything around the NBA, just ask ESPN Sportscenter. Counting down from 15 here's a look at how numbers figured into Friday night's NBA contests.

    14 rebounds for new Phoenix Suns center, Shaq
    13 games total on last night's schedule
    12 losses now for the Boston Celtics
    11 straight wins for the Houston Rockets
    10 is number of Carlos Boozer's rebounds or Deron Williams' assists
    9 Pacers players suited up for a win (Nets)
    8 Cavs players suited up for a win (Wizards)
    7 turnovers for Knick Jamal Crawford who also had 43 points
    6 game losing streak snapped by Hawks, 117-110 win over GS
