Playoff Notes: Celtics-Mavs "Falls"
Rick Carlisle used to preach to his teams to have a "Hit First Mentality" and it's safe to say the Celtics won that battle in the Finals...

Dallas players fell to the ground 110 times over the five games while Boston players fell only 67 times. Moreover the Mavs only got a foul called on Boston on 24% of those falls, to the Celtics' 33% foul drawing rate on falls.

...and if you're looking for support for Jaylen Brown as the Finals MVP, he led all players by a big margin in total "Knockdowns" (causing an opposing player to fall)...and only got dinged for a foul on 8 of the 30 KD's he had. His physicality was a key reason why the Celtics dominated.

25 - Kyrie Irving
19 - Luka Doncic
19 - Jaylen Brown
12 - Daniel Gafford
12 - Jrue Holiday
30 - Jaylen Brown
18 - Jayson Tatum
14 - Luka Doncic
13 - Al Horford
12 - Dereck Lively

Credit the Celtics for hitting more than being hit, although of course a lot depends on how the refs call a game... the pivotal Game 3 where Luka was called out afterwards for barking at the refs a lot (and indeed, we had him with 13 'major arguing moments' and another 7 'significant' ones), on his 8 falls he got zero fouls called on Boston, while on his 6 knockdowns they called him for a foul four times! So a rough whistle indeed.

see the full Mavs-Celtics Falls article for more details.

Winning Time
While we invented the "Clutch stats" definition the NBA later adopted as its own, we are now partial to our new "WINNING TIME" numbers...

...Sortable numbers for the 4th quarter/OT when the game is within 10 pts

Raw Plus/Minus
(Winning Time)

+160 -- Paul George
+158 -- Caldwell-Pope
+150 -- Jokic

"Simple" Player Ratings
While we don't believe much in single number player ratings, the "82games Simple" rating gives a quick read on how a player is doing with his team this season...the leaders?

+19.3 -- Antetokounmpo
+19.0 -- Embiid* (only 32% of Min played)
+18.5 -- Jokic
+17.7 -- Doncic
+17.0 -- Gilgeous-Alexander

Team Won-Lost Pages
Which teams are kings of close games? The Lakers (24-9), Mavericks (23-9), and Nuggets (26-14) lead the way.

Minnesota has the best comeback percentage when down 10+ at some point with an 16-19 record, while the Knicks are 45-4 when they get a 10+ point lead.

Clutch Stats
Sortable per minute clutch stats...several players are making a lot of noise in the clutch this season...

Points per 36 minutes

39.4 -- Irving

Team Won-Lost Responsibility
Numbers looking at game by game performances for a team that assign responsibility for each game's outcome to either the offense, the defense, or both sides of the ball.


At 82games we let the numbers speak for themselves most of the time. We sure crank out enough of them! Indeed we see ourselves primarily as a resource for the NBA community at large, whether you're a fan, a coach, an agent, a player, a sportswriter, a broadcaster, or a team executive.

Stat of the Day:
The Knicks are the only top ten "Net Rebounding %" team left alive in the playoffs...but they were #1 in the league at +5.5% (29.4% OREB vs Opp 23.9%) and escaped the first round largely because of their rebounding advantage versus the Sixers.
