  • The teams were nearly even in two of the four factors - effective field goal percentage (54.9% for L.A., 54.2% for Miami) and free throw rate (0.265 for Miami, 0.256 for L.A.). The key differences came in turnover ratio, which favored Miami 13.4 to 15.9; as well as offensive rebound rate, which favored L.A. 33.3% to 20.0%.

  • Despite the large deficit in offensive rebounding, the Heat kept the second-chance points battle close, allowing just six second-chance points to the Lakers, while scoring five of their own.
