Research Notes

  • LeBron James drove or caught the ball on the left side of the floor on 15 of his 36 plays Sunday. Five of his 8 assists, which led to 13 points, came when LeBron was passing from the left side of the floor.

  • The Heat have been playing lights out basketball since Super Bowl Sunday. During that span, they've won 38 of 40 games, outscoring opponents by nearly 11 points per game, shooting better than 50 percent from the field and 40 percent on 3-point attempts.

  • LeBron James had at least 25 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists in a playoff game for the 13th time in his career. That's the most 25-10-8 playoff games in NBA history. Next on the list is Oscar Robertson with 10, followed by Bird, Kareem and Magic. That's quite the Hall of Fame list with LeBron on top.
