4. To put it lightly, the Hawks have had a difficult time containing rookie Kendrick Nunn this season. Nunn had 17 points in Miami’s win Oct. 29, 28 points in Miami’s win Oct. 31 and led the Heat in scoring with 36 points Tuesday. Nunn entered Tuesday’s game averaging 15.3 points per game. The Heat had a handful of players filling out the stat sheet, with Jimmy Butler (20 points, 10 assists, 18 rebounds) and Bam Adebayo (30 points, 11 assists, 11 rebounds) registering triple-doubles, and Robinson tying the franchise record for 3’s in a game with 10.
5. Vince Carter became the fifth player in NBA history to play in 1,500 regular-season games (and he made his 1,500th game a solid one, with 12 points, four assists and three rebounds). He follows in the footsteps of Robert Parish (1,611 games), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (1,560), Dirk Nowitzki (1,522) and John Stockton (1,504).
By the Numbers
22.2% (the percentage the Hawks shot from the field in overtime, as they were held to just four points)
