The NBA‘s regular season concluded last night in typical fashion: clouded by drama. The entire season has felt like a soap opera of sorts, starting with Kevin Durant joining the Warriors to the dismay of many, and ending with the Brooklyn Nets killing a tight race for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference and subsequently the Heat’s playoff birth because the last-place team opted to rest their key starters for, uh, the summer. The Knicks did Oakley like a United Airlines passenger, and if Carmelo doesn’t volunteer his seat, he might get the same treatment this offseason. Shaq and Javale McGee made us cringe, LeBron had our eyes rolling into our skull, resting players became a “significant issue,” and the loss of Craig Sager is still being felt. But don’t let any of that (RIP Sags) distract you from one simple fact: this regular season was five-fire emojis lit.

Thanks to the power of small-ball, the 2016-17 season saw a number of records break at the hands of both players and teams, led by Russell Westbrook and his 42 triple-doubles. So with another wildly-anticipated post-season kicking off this weekend, here’s a list of NBA records set during the season.
