Yup. Lowest was 11 points (twice), highest was 32 (3 times) rexcept

multiple regression on win/loss might help--put minutes played or
margin of victory/loss as first predictor and then the stat of
interest such as points scored as second predictor and see what you
get. But I'm not sure how to carry it out properly since the
predictor variables are likely to be correlated, which tends to
invalidate the result. Anybody have any ideas?
