    Research Notes

    The Pacers are 7-0 in games when trailing in a playoff series during the last two seasons, including 3-0 vs the Heat. The last time Indiana lost a game when trailing in the series? Game 6 vs Miami in 2012
    From Elias: Michael Jordan holds the all-time record for most points scored in a single game on Memorial Day. He totaled 54 points against the Knicks in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals on May 31, 1993. The Bulls won, 105-95, to even the series 2-2. Chicago would go on to win the series in 6 games, advancing to the NBA Finals where they would defeat the Phoenix Suns en route to their 3rd consecutive title.
    Ray Allen needs just 1 point tonight to pass Bill Russell for 30th on the NBA's all-time playoff scoring list.
    LeBron James has registered at least 25 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in 73 playoff games, tied for the most in NBA history with Michael Jordan.
    The Heat have outscored the Pacers by 41 over the last 3 games with Hibbert on the court after being outscored by 19 in Game 1.
    James finished 10-of-12 inside the paint, his second-most paint points this playoffs. James had 74 offensive touches on Sunday, his most against the Pacers in the playoffs since Game 5 last season. James' average field goal distance was 10 feet Sunday, 2.3 feet closer on Sunday than the first three games of the series.
    Since engaging LeBron James in a war of words, Lance Stephenson's game has gone quiet. Stephenson was plagued with foul trouble for most of the first half and did not score his first point until the 4:34 mark of the third quarter with the Pacers trailing by 14 points.
    LeBron James scored 14 points and created an additional seven points off his playoff-high 11 drives. James created as many points on drives as he did in the first three games of the series combined.
    The Heat's 123.6 points per 100 possessions were their most against the Pacers in a game this season (regular season or postseason).
    The Heat committed seven turnovers, tied for their fewest turnovers in a game this season (regular season or postseason) and their second-lowest turnover percentage of the playoffs.
    Chris Bosh scored 25 points, 17 of which came in the first half, including the Heat's first eight points. Guarded by Roy Hibbert on five field goal attempts, Bosh was especially effective on jump shots. Chris Bosh shot 5-of-7 on uncontested jumpers compared to 3-of-9 in the first three games of the series. Chris Bosh was held to six points on 22% (2-of-9) shooting in the first three games with Roy Hibbert as his primary defender. In Game 4, Bosh scored 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting against Hibbert.
