Research Notes

  • LeBron James was much more aggressive getting closer to the basket in Game 1 when Roy Hibbert was out of the game. In just nine minutes played with Hibbert on the bench, James went 4-for-6 for 8 points inside 5 feet of the basket. In 38 minutes played with Hibbert on the court, James scored half as many points in that area.

  • For as much as everyone is talking about Roy Hibbert being on the bench for the final play last night:In Game 1:The Heat shot 47.7% with Hibbert on the court (31-65).The Heat shot 47.6% with Hibbert off the court (10-21).

  • From Elias: LeBron James was already in the category of elite players. LeBron's go-ahead shot last night has now put him in the clutch - perhaps even most clutch. When LeBron has success late in games, it's in large part because he attacks the rim.Interestingly, the average distance for LeBron's made field goals in these situations is 5.8 feet. And, 4 of those 5 shots were within 3 feet of the rim (source: Elias Sports Bureau). The average made field goal for the rest of the league is 16.0 feet.

  • From Elias: In NBA history, when the road team loses Game 1 of a 7-game series in overtime, they've only come back to win the series 20% of the time.

  • Since LeBron came into the league in 2003-04, nobody in the NBA has made more game-tying and go-ahead shots in the final 24 seconds of playoff games than LeBron, who is 7-of-16 on those shots. His 43.8 field-goal percentage on those clutch shots ranks the best in the NBA since his rookie season among players with at least 10 attempts. Along with his buzzer-beater layup, LeBron also made a go-ahead layup with just under 11 seconds remaining in overtime.

  • FROM ELIAS:LeBron James is the 2nd player in NBA history with at least 30 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and 3 blocks in a playoff game.The other was Ralph Sampson in 1986.Sampson had 33 Pts, 17 Reb, 10 Ast & 5 Blk against the Nuggets. Blocks became an official stat in 1973-74.

  • LeBron James is the first player in NBA postseason history with a triple-double and a buzzer-beater game-winner in the same game.

  • The Heat scored 60 points in the paint in Game 1 against the Pacers, shooting 72.2% (13-of-18) in the 4th quarter and overtime. In the regular season, the Heat averaged 30.7 points per game in the paint against the Pacers, their fewest against any opponent.The Heat outscored the Pacers 40-26 in the paint in the 2nd half and overtime after the Pacers outscored the Heat by 2 in the 1st half. David West was limited to 2 points in the paint (1-of-2 FG) in the 2nd half and overtime after scoring 10 in the 1st half (5-of-7 FG).

  • LeBron James drove five times in the first three quarters, committing two turnovers and recording three assists on those plays. In the 4th quarter and overtime, James drove eight times and shot on five. James scored two go-ahead field goals on drives, including the game-winner, in the final 11 seconds of overtime.

  • LeBron James was able to hit both of his driving layups in the final 11 seconds without the threat of Roy Hibbert, who was subbed out in favor of Sam Young.This season including playoffs, the Heat have shot 73.7% inside 5 feet (21-of-26 in Game 1) when Roy Hibbert was either off court or unable to contest the shot. The Heat have shot 46.9% (5-of-10 in Game 1) when Hibbert contested the attempt.

  • Since the 2006 postseason, a player has had a playoff triple-double with at least 30 points 4 times. All 4 of those players are named LeBron James.

  • LeBron James now has 9 career playoff triple-doubles. Only Magic Johnson, Jason Kidd, Rajon Rondo & Larry Bird have more.
