Research Notes

  • The Spurs' Big 3 combined for 67 points on 25-of-38 shooting, a game after the Heat's Big 3 led Miami to a Game 4 victory with 85 points, their most in a postseason game in the last 3 seasons. The Spurs' Big 3 bounced back after combining for 40 points on 14-of-31 shooting in Game 4.

  • Danny Green has made an NBA Finals record 25 3-point field goals through the 1st 5 games of the series.

    NEXT LEVEL: Green has made 23-of-35 (65.7%) catch-and-shoot 3-pointers, after entering the NBA Finals shooting 25-of-58 (43.1%) on such attempts during the postseason.

    Green is 18-of-24 on open 3-pointers and 7-of-14 on contested attempts.

  • The Spurs outscored the Heat 45-33 on drives in Game 5, including 14 points when Manu Ginobili kept the ball on drives, and 9 during the Spurs' 19-1 run. The Heat shot 39.3% on drives, including 4-of-12 on drives from Dwyane Wade and LeBron James (11-15 FG, 26 pts in Game 4).- Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili drove 7 times when Norris Cole was the primary defender, and they went 5-of-5 from the field for 11 points.- The Spurs outscored the Heat by 10 points in the paint, and LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined to shoot 10-of-26 (38.5%), tied for their worst combined shooting performance in the paint during the last 3 postseasons.

  • LeBron James was 1-of-8 shooting against Boris Diaw in Game 5 and 7-of-14 against all other defenders. James' 1st 4 shot attempts against Diaw were at least 19 feet from the basket, and he struggled going 0-of-3 on post-ups when he attacked Diaw later in the game.

  • Manu Ginobili had a series-high 50 touches, and the Spurs averaged 1.17 points per play after a Ginobili touch (0.80 points per play on Ginobili's touches in Games 1-4). Ginobili was aggressive, shooting 5-of-8 and drawing 3 fouls (4-5 FT) on his 12 drives to the basket for 14 points.

  • After playing the Heat's starters to a draw through four games, San Antonio's insertion of Manu Ginobili into the starting lineup pushed the Spurs ahead.

  • With their Game 5 win, the Spurs continue their incredible streak. San Antonio has never trailed in 27 NBA Finals games now, the longest streak before trailing in NBA history. The second-longest active streak belongs to the team now known as the Kings - and all seven of their games came in 1951 as the Rochester Royals.

  • Much has been made about the Heat's ability to bounce back after losses; however, they've been completely unable to maintain any momentum. Miami has lost each of its last five games following double-digit wins this postseason, one shy of the NBA record.The '82 76ers lost in the NBA Finals while the '62 Celtics ultimately won the title.

  • From Elias:

  • In his first start of the season, Manu Ginobili came through. He scored 24 points, his most in any game this year (regular or postseason).

  • Since the NBA Finals went to the 2-3-2 format in 1985, only three teams have won Games 6 and 7 at home.

  • Game 5 and the Spurs go together well. San Antonio is now 4-and-0 in the 5th of the NBA Finals, Sunday's game the 3rd straight they entered tied at 2. Of course, the Spurs went on to win each of the previous series.

  • Danny Green has just been unbelievable this series. He has nearly doubled his scoring average and has set a Finals record in 3-pointers made.

  • LeBron James was 1-of-8 shooting against Boris Diaw in Game 5, and 7-of-14 against all other defenders. James' 1st 4 shot attempts against Diaw were at least 19 feet from the basket, and he struggled going 0-of-3 on post ups when attacked Diaw later in the game.
