From Elias: Jason Kidd recorded his 1,000th career playoff rebound tonight. According to Elias, he's just the fifth player in NBA history to register 1,000 career points, rebounds, and assists.
From Elias: It's not often that the defending NBA champion finds itself down 2-0 in the opening round. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it's just the FOURTH TIME in NBA History a reigning champ lost its first two postseason games and none of the previous 3 teams went on to win the series.
