Research Notes

  • From Elias: Last night the Knicks defeated the Heat by 20 points in their season opener for the 4th highest margin of victory by a team in their season opener against a defending NBA champion. For New York, it's the 2nd time they've blown out a defending champion by at least 20 points in a season opener. Consequently for the Heat, they've been on the receiving end in 2 of the 4 largest blowouts.

  • From Elias: The Knicks made 19 3-pt FG on Friday night, the most ever by a team in a season opener. The previous record was 16 by the Magic in 2009 vs the 76ers.

  • The Knicks made 17 of 34 attempts on catch-and-shoot plays, which accounted for 46 of their 104 points. They struggled on such shots against the Heat last season, specifically in the playoffs, making 30.7 percent of their attempts on catch-and-shoot plays.

  • The Knicks scored 66.3 percent of their points (69 of 104) on shots taken at least 15 feet from the basket, their second-highest percentage of points on such shots in a single game over the past five seasons. The Heat took nearly half of their shots from the same distance, but couldn't keep up with the Knicks hot shooting.

  • From Elias:
