Research Notes

  • 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. Keep in mind that 2 NBA defending champions missed the postseason entirely - the 1970 Celtics and 1999 Bulls.

  • Kevin Durant was held to 0-4 shooting inside 10 feet of the basket in Game 2. It's the first time all season that Durant has failed to make a field goal from inside 10 feet and the first time since Game 6 of last season's Western Conference Semifinals against the Grizzlies.
