.. The Celtics scored 30 points in the first quarter and 40 points in the
fourth quarter but what happened between those two periods doomed them
in their 103-96 loss at Indiana. Boston scored 13 points in the second
quarter and 13 points in the third quarter, marking the first time in
more than half a century that the Celtics were held to 13 or fewer
points in each of two consecutive quarters in one game.
The Celtics last did that in a 62-57 victory over the Milwaukee Hawks on
Feb. 27, 1955, in a game played at Providence, Rhode Island. (That
stands as the lowest-scoring game -- 119 points -- in the NBA since it
adopted the 24-second clock in 1954.)
.. Dwyane Wade had 28 points, six assists and six rebounds (in only 31
minutes) in Miami's 110-80 win over Milwaukee. Wade's averages for his
12 games played this January: 30.3 points, 7.8 assists and 6.0 rebounds
per game. He's the first player in Heat franchise history to average 30
points per game in a calendar month.
Wade is also only the fourth NBA player in the last 13 seasons to
average at least 30 points, six rebounds and six assists per game in a
calendar month (minimum: 10 games). The others: LeBron James (four
times), Tracy McGrady (twice) and Kobe Bryant (once).
.. Michael Doleac came off the bench and led the Heat with 11 rebounds
and five steals. In the past 10 years, only one other NBA player had at
least 11 rebounds and five steals in a game that he did not start: Shawn
Kemp, who had 14 rebounds and five steals as a reserve for Portland on
Nov. 4, 2000 at Seattle.
.. Gilbert Arenas had 36 points and 11 assists in Washington's victory
over Detroit. Arenas is averaging 25.3 points and 6.3 assists per game
in 15 career games against the Pistons. Only three other players in NBA
history own career averages of at least 25 points and six assists per
game against the Pistons: Jerry West (28.1 and 6.9), Oscar Robertson
(27.4 and 10.1) and Larry Bird (25.1 and 6.5).
Arenas also had seven rebounds on Tuesday night, making him the first
player to post a 35/10/7 (points/assists/rebounds) game against Detroit
in 10 years. The last player to do that was Sacramento's Mitch Richmond
on Jan. 22, 1997 (38/10/10).
.. With an injured LeBron James watching from the bench, Cleveland took a
37-22 lead at the end of the first quarter en route to a 124-97 win over
Golden State. In LeBron's 281 NBA games, the Cavs have scored at least
37 points in the first quarter only twice.
Eight different Cavaliers players scored at least 10 points in the
victory. Only one other NBA team had as many as eight players scored in
double-digits in the same game this season: San Antonio did that on Dec.
4, also against Golden State.
.. In Kobe Bryant's absence, Lamar Odom had a team-high 25 points and
nine rebounds in the Lakers' 99-94 loss to the Knicks. In the four games
that Kobe has missed this season, Odom has averaged 21.8 points and 11.5
rebounds. In all other games he has averaged 16.8 points and 8.2
rebounds per game.
.. David Lee had a game-high 13 rebounds for the Knicks. Lee now has a
streak of six consecutive games in which he has come off the bench and
pulled down at least 12 rebounds. Prior to Lee, the two most recent NBA
players to do that in at least six straight games were Dennis Rodman in
1993-94 (he had a six-game streak and a nine-game streak that season)
and Paul Silas in 1975-76 (a nine-game streak).
.. Austin Croshere was the unlikely hero in Dallas' win over Seattle,
scoring a career-high 34 points. Croshere entered the game averaging 2.9
points per game (in 25 games) this season. Since 1980, only one other
NBA player scored 30 or more points in a game, while previously
averaging fewer than three points per game in that season. The Bulls'
Jannero Pargo scored 34 points against Milwaukee on March 26, 2004; he
averaged 2.4 points per game in 20 prior games that season.
.. Croshere scored his 34 points in only 24 minutes. In the last 15
years, only one other NBA player scored at least that many points in
game while logging fewer than 25 minutes: Ben Gordon, who scored 35
points in 23 minutes on March 30, 2005.
