Research Notes

  • After Kyle Lowry's career playoff high of 36 points on Wednesday, he's now averaging 5 more points per game than Deron Williams in the playoffs with better shooting percentages.That's a very big deal considering that Deron Williams made nearly THREE times what Lowry did this season.Good news for Lowry, who is a free agent to be this offseason.

  • Analysis: The Nets effective field goal percentage was their highest in a loss this season. Entering Game 5, they were 8-0 with an effective field goal percentage of at least 60%.

  • The Nets were outscored by 31 points in 24 minutes with Paul Pierce on the court, his worst plus-minus in any game since May 10, 2008, against the Cavaliers.

    Playing with his longtime teammate did not help. The Nets were outscored by 15 points in 12 minutes with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce on the court. In the first four games of the series, Pierce and Garnett were +23 when they were on the court together.

  • Deron Williams was unable to continue to slow down Kyle Lowry, who scored a postseason career-high 36 points in Game 5.
