Tracking Races for NBA Scoring Title, Rebounding Crown and More
Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

They didn't all bring the final dramatic charges that hoops heads had been hoping for, but most of the individual statistic crowns remained unsettled entering the final night of the 2012-13 season.

Playoff jostling will dominate Thursday's headlines as just two of the eight first-round matchups were set when play began on Wednesday night.

But the battles within the battles, the solo stat races still warranted heavy attention.

Carmelo Anthony wrapped up the first scoring title of his career before the night even got started. But he wasn't the only prolific scorer etching his name into the history books.

Rajon Rondo's been rehabbing for months, but that didn't stop him from locking up his second straight assists crown. Dwight Howard secured the rebounding title before he even stepped foot on the floor, but it wouldn't be his final entry into the history books of the season.

Fellow Defensive Player of the Year candidate Serge Ibaka earned an early exit from the Oklahoma City Thunder's clash with the Milwaukee Bucks, but still walked away with his second shot-blocking title in his four-year career.

As for the steals race, let's just say Chris Paul and Ricky Rubio swiped that lead from each other before the night was finished.
