- Miami has out-rebounded their last six opponents and has recorded a 12-4 record when out-rebounding opponents this season.
- The HEAT is a perfect 7-0 this season when holding opponents to under 40 percent from the field.
- Head Coach Erik Spoelstra has recorded 668 career wins (583 regular season & 85 postseason) with the HEAT, and according to the Associated Press, the 668 total wins are the fifth-most by a head coach with a single franchise in NBA history.
