and yes its only 5 on 5
I stand corrected. Thanks for clarifying. Someday I will dig into all the details of it. If that's the case, I wonder how MAB had such a high number. He played well in those playoffs, but he isn't a defensive stalwart by any means.
Edit: Seems that you were wrong haha. It seemed odd that zone starts would be included.
