--G Dwyane Wade was leading the league in scoring at 28.4 points per game entering Saturday's contest against the Clippers. No Heat player has ever won the scoring title in the team's 21-year existence. The Elias Sports Bureau wasn't sure if this marked the first time a Heat player had ever led the league in scoring at any point during the season.--Miami had a 15-point free-throw discrepancy against the Clippers on Saturday. Los Angeles was 23-for-35 from the line, while the Heat was 8-for-11.
"There was a big discrepancy on free-throw shooting," coach Erik Spoelstra said, "but they were aggressive, and we could not keep them off the line."
QUOTE TO NOTE: "He'll respond. Michael always responds. And there's nothing like the carrot of playing time. Knowing Michael the last few months, I think he'll fight for (his playing time)." -- Coach Erik Spoelstra, on F Michael Beasley coming off the bench instead of starting.
