  • According to NumberFire's mathematical modeling, the Bulls chances to win this series against the Heat without Derrick Rose are 21.4%. Even if Rose returns at 100% for the remainder of the series, those odds only rise to 24.8%.

  • From Elias: The Bulls are not out of this series yet.18 teams have lost a non-elimination postseason game by 37+ points. Those teams went 7-11 in their next game.

  • After posting a -15 plus-minus in Game 1, his third-worst in the postseason since joining the Heat, James was +25 Thursday. James was primarily defended by Jimmy Butler and went 7-of-10 from the field and 1-of-2 from the free-throw line, resulting in 16 points. In 2 games, James has gone 12-of-18 and 3-of-6 from the free-throw line for 29 points with Butler defending him.

  • LeBron James went 6-6 FG in the 1st quarter. He had never before had a playoff game of 6-6 FG or better in the 1st quarter.Last player to go 6-6 FG or better in 1st quarter of a playoff game: Zach Randolph, May 9 2012 vs Clippers
