Before today, the NBA let you watch game highlights, big dunks, buzzer-beaters, and similar replay-worthy clips.

Now, though, the league is taking it to a serious new level. Fans can now access a a box score from a game during the past two years and click on any single stat — whether it’s a 3-pointer, turnover or missed free throw — and see video evidence within seconds.

Yep, that’s right: Whether it was the most memorable shot ever or an absolutely bone-headed mistake, video from every play of every game will be available 45 minutes following its conclusion.

For example, here’s the box score from Portland’s 113-101 win over Golden State on Saturday. Every single stat is hyperlinked to the associated video replay — click on LaMarcus Aldridge’s 21 rebounds, and you can see every single one. Click on Nicolas Batum’s 9 shots, and you’ll see every single one.
