Every week, we'll rank the top 10 players from the previous week using game score as our starting point.

Created by former ESPN.com stats guru and current Grizzlies VP of basketball operations John Hollinger, game score measures a player's productivity for a single outing based on the weighting of various box score statistics (for a more complete explanation, check out Week 1).

Now on to the rankings.

Note: These rankings are for games played from Monday, Jan. 22, through Sunday. We're also keeping the race five deep this week. The usual top 10 will return soon.
