Dominating a game without scoring
 
In this thread list some games where a player dominated or was simply the most impacting player while scoring 15 or fewer points. I'll get started.

Magic- 1982 NBA Finals Game 6 vs Sixers
13pts/13rbs/13asts

He took just three shots, and his performance prompted Dr. J to say, "He is the only player who can take three shots and still dominate a game".Link

Dennis Rodman- 1996 NBA Finals Games 2 and 6 vs Sonics
Game 2- 10pts/ 20rbs

So was Rodman. The Bulls' power forward finished the evening with 20 rebounds -- he tied an NBA Finals record with 11 offensive boards -- including the most crucial rebound of the game in the closing seconds. Karl called him Chicago's most valuable player of the evening.

Game 6- 9pts/19rbs/5asts

"As you evaluate the series, Dennis Rodman won two basketball games," Karl said. "We controlled Dennis Rodman for four gmaes. But Game 2 and tonight, he was the reason they were successful."

Rodman was the central figure in the burst that gave the Bulls control of the game. The Sonics trailed 52-45 with less than nine minutes left in the third quarter. Chicago went on a 12-2 run over the next two minutes to take a 64-47 lead with 6:41 remaining in the period. Rodman had five points in the run, capping the surge with a perfect backdoor pass to Jordan for a layup.

Jason Kidd definitely has a few.

A bit boring to list 400 Bill Russell games, so, I'll list a completely dominant game by Wilt in 1972:

3 points, 31 rebounds, 10 assists, 12 blocked shots.

Wilt under Hannum and Sharman was incredibly impactful.

Does anyone have any info on Wes Unseld's 1978 Finals? He was named MVP while averaging only 9ppg.

Yeah. I know. Russell is basically the poster child for this thread. Russell even dominated a game before the game was played.

"Bill Russell was so special that he had a direct effect on a playoff series before he ever played a game. In the spring of 1957, the Celtics were scheduled to play the Syracuse Nationals in a first-round, best-of-five affair. The day before the series began, Syracuse coach Paul Seymour made a startling announcement. Starting center Johnny Kerr, a very good ballplayer, would be coming off the bench. It seems that Russell had given him a very hard time during the season."

Im just not going to start out giving Russell an advantage, Seymour reasoned.

I would like to find out more about Wilt's 1972 season. I've heard various respectable and knowledgeable people say that they felt he deserved the MVP that season.

We also have a Russell spreadsheet (the main site is nbastats.net).

Ben Wallace would definitely have a few. Not on a regular basis because of Detroit's commitment to team basketball, everyone really did their part. But some games shots wouldnt fall but this guy would be out there out working everyone. Too bad his knees disintegrated.

Rondo has some nice ones

15 pts - 11 rebs - 20 assists in game 3 vs NY in the 2011 playoffs

15 pts - 11 rebs - 18 assists in game 2 vs Orlando in the 2009 playoffs

13 pts - 12 rebs - 17 assists in game 1 vs Philly in last years playoffs
