- Score 100.9 points per 100 possessions but give up 102.3 points per 100 possessions
- Monta Ellis — Which Monta Ellis is going to show up? The one that shot 28.7% from three point range, or the one that scores 25 points in a quarter and does crazy spinning reverse layups?
- Will Brandon Jennings tear the Heat a new one just like he did last time these two teams played (when he dropped 30)? If there’s a player the Heat should be absolutely terrified of, it is Brandon Jennings. In the four games the Bucks have played against the Heat, Jennings has averaged around 24 points per game — the next highest scoring Bucks player (Mike Dunleavy) has averaged around 10 points per game. If the Heat can shut down Jennings, the Heat can shut down pretty much all of the Bucks’ offense.
Then again he might do this all game so…
- Most used lineup: Ellis, Ilyasova, Jennings, Mbah a Moute, Sanders
389 minutes played, Offensive Rating: 103 pp100, Defensive Rating: 96.4 pp100
- No lineup has played more than 400 minutes, so the different lineups do not have a whole lot of experience.
- Second most utilized lineup (Daniels, Ellis, Ilyasova, Jennings, Sanders) gets outscored by 5.7 points per 100 possessions.
- The player with the highest net rating (Bucks outscore opponent when he plays) is Gustavo Ayon. Has played in 12 games and averages 13 point per game (so not a large sample) but has a net rating of 23.5 points per 100 possessions.
- The worst player (that plays at least 10 minutes per game) for the Bucks is Tobias Harris. Harris has played in 28 games, and averages 11 minutes per game. When he plays, the Bucks get outscored by 8.1 points per 100 possessions.
- Mike Dunleavy has a true shooting percentage of 57.7%, the highest true shooting percentage on the Bucks. By comparison, Dwayne Wade has a true shooting percentage of 57.1%. Basically, true shooting percentage more accurately measures the effectiveness of a player’s shooting taking into account threes and free throws (something plain field goal percentage doesn’t do).
