Research Notes

  • The Celtics have played 744 minutes without Rondo this season - and the numbers may surprise you. Efficiency measures points per 100 possessions - and the C's have been slightly better both offensively and defensively in that category this season without Rondo.

  • The Celtics and Heat finished with 14 points each in transition on Sunday. The Heat are ranked in the top three in both offensive and defensive efficiency in transition. In addition to playing without Rajon Rondo, Boston entered Sunday as the league's least efficient transition defense (1.26 PPP).

  • The Heat's average distance per field goal attempt was 20.9 feet from the basket in the fourth quarter (12.2 feet in the first three quarters). Miami attempted one shot at or inside 5 feet in the fourth quarter, a Ray Allen layup with 10:44 remaining. The Heat attempted 14 field goals at that distance in the first quarter, the highest single-quarter total Miami has registered this season. Miami scored on 11-of-19 attempts around the basket in the first half, but was only 7-for-12 in the second half (including both overtime periods).
