Research Notes

  • Although Carmelo Anthony was 8-of-17 (47.1%) from the field for 26 points, he struggled to find his rhythm from the floor as Shane Battier denied or fronted him on 21 of his 35 touches with Battier guarding him (56 total touches). Two of Anthony's made field goals came with fewer than 5 seconds on the shot clock and were tough and contested. Anthony's 56 touches Saturday, were below his season average of 70 touches per game according NBA.com player tracking data.

    - Five of Anthony's seven turnovers came with Battier defending him.

    ...and contributes on offense
    On a night where Chris Bosh was 2-of-11 from the floor for 4 points, Battier went 5-of-8 from the floor for 16 points including 4-of-7 from behind the arc.

  • LeBron James (30 points) and Dwyane Wade (22 points) combined to score nearly 50% of the Heat's points Saturday. Both players were aggressive in getting to the basket, attempting 19 of their 37 field goals 10 feet and inside.

    - 33 Heat points came off of either James or Wade post up or drives. They average 23.1 points per game combined on post ups and drives. *Drive data provided by NBA.com player tracking.

  • Dwyane Wade has played in each of Miami's last 3 games after missing 4 straight games due to knee issues. He scored 22 points on 10-of-15 shooting against the Knicks. The Heat are 26-7 with Wade in the lineup compared to 7-6 without him.

  • LeBron James (MIA): 30 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists, 6 steals; 1st player to hit those marks since Chris Paul on Jan. 14, 2009. 1st Heat player to do so since Eddie Jones on Dec. 16, 2002.
