In the NBA, if PlayerA fouls ShooterA on a shot attempt and PlayerB cleanly blocks the shot (no foul called on PlayerB), does the block count in the stat sheet?
If the answer is no, is there a stat that tracks this?

...Also, on a shooting foul, a blocked shot cannot be awarded or counted, even if the player who deflected the field goal attempt is different from the player who committed the foul...
If a block is made after a shooting foul is called, it is not credited, nor is it tracked.
Only if it is a shooting foul. If Player B blocks the shot, he is awarded a block.
Some fouls are called in the progress of a play, but are determined to be on the floor (non-shooting foul). In this instance, neither a shot attempt, nor a block is counted. No stats are kept for this block.
