Research Notes

  • From Elias: The Celtics have won 5 of their last 6 home games when facing playoff elimination.

  • From Elias: Carmelo Anthony and Michael Jordan are the only 2 players in the shot-clock era who have taken at least 35 shots in a playoff game and made 10 or fewer.Jordan's game came in 1997 in a loss to the Heat in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals (9-35)

  • Carmelo Anthony has scored at least 30 points in each of the four games he has played in which his team had a chance to clinch a playoff series. Only Michael Jordan and Oscar Robertson had a longer such streak to begin their careers.

  • The Knicks bench scored 7 points in Game 4 against the Celtics, the fewest bench points for the Knicks this season.Including playoffs, J.R. Smith averaged 18.0 PPG off the bench for the Knicks this season.

  • Carmelo Anthony had the third-most offensive plays in isolation in the regular season, with those plays accounting for 26% of his offense. This postseason, Anthony has gone isolation 43% of the time, but he and the Knicks have been better when limiting 1-on-1 offense.Anthony passed once every 3.5 touches in Game 4, after averaging 2.8 touches per pass the first three games of the series. In total, Anthony had 73 touches Sunday (64 in regulation), his most in the postseason.

  • Jason Terry attacked the basket more in Game 4, attempting 40% of his field goals inside the paint and going 4 of 4 on those attempts. In Games 1-3, Terry was a combined 1 of 4 in the paint, which accounted for 18% of his field goal attempts.

  • The Celtics found their rhythm on offense in Game 4, making nearly as many catch-and-shoot attempts (11) as they did the first three games combined (14). Paul Pierce was 4 of 7 on catch-and-shoots Sunday after going 0 of 12 in Games 1-3.

  • Even with the win, the Celtics have scored just 322 total points this series, their fewest in any 4-game span in a single postseason in franchise history.

  • The Knicks have scored fewer than 100 points in each of their last 44 postseason games. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that is the longest streak of its kind in NBA postseason history. The Last time the Knicks reached 100 points in a postseason game was on June 9, 1999 in a 101-94 win over the Pacers.

  • The 3rd quarter was key for the Knicks comeback, as they outscored the Celtics 30-14 to mostly erase a 19-point halftime deficit en route to sending the game to overtime.

  • Carmelo Anthony missed 12 shots in the first half Sunday against the Celtics, the most he's missed in ANY half in a postseason game in his career. His previous high was 11 shots missed on April 30, 2010 against the Jazz.

  • The Knicks committed 13 turnovers in the first half Sunday against the Celtics, their most in any half in a game this season (postseason and regular season).
