SAN ANTONIO -- If you're looking for the stat of the game from Thursday's opener, try this one: 12 trillion.

That number comes courtesy of PA SportsTicker's Chris Bernucca, who pointed out that Cleveland's Damon Jones had a rather unusual stat line in Game 1.

Jones played 12 minutes on Thursday, but you'd have a hard time proving it. He managed to avoid registering a single notice in the box score -- no points, no shot attempts, no rebounds, no fouls, no turnovers, nothing. Thus, his line read "12 0-0 0-0 0-0 0 0 0 0 0 0" -- a 12 followed by 12 zeroes, as in "12 trillion." (Note for the pedants out there: many of today's expanded box scores now display 15 zeroes, which would make it a "12 quadrillion.")
