Anyone who watched the Denver Nuggets' 100-99 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night knew that Timofey Mozgov played a major role in the game. However, an erroneous graphic put up after the contest showed that fans didn't understand just how big of an impact the center had.

According to the graphic above, the fourth-year player put up an astounding 93 points—on only 10 field goals—29 rebounds and three blocks. That means Mozgov made a minimum of 63 free throws on his way to putting up the second-most points in a game in NBA history.

Of course, that error led to this graphic:

The 7'1" center was great Thursday night, but he wasn't quite that spectacular.

In reality, Mozgov had 23 points, 29 rebounds, three blocks, three assists and a steal in 43 minutes against the Warriors. Those numbers don't need enhancing to be impressive.
