The Washington Wizards took down the No. 4-seeded Chicago Bulls in the first round of the 2014 NBA playoffs, and it looks like praising hustle plays was one of their keys to victory.

While the Wizards aren't the only team keeping track of things like charges taken, deflections and percentages of contested shots, it's interesting to see that players like John Wall, who some have called "selfish," excels at team-oriented intangibles.
