How statistics can be misleading

Wizards coach Ed Tapscott on how stats can be misleading:

"There are lies, big lies and statistics, and statistics can tell you whatever you want them to tell you," he said. "Seeing the chemistry of the team, that's like HD. If you just look at statistics, it's like watching black-and-white . . . [pause] . . . analog TV. If you just look at stats and think you know something about the team, you're watching analog television."
