The Miami Heat Are The Most Impressive Playoff Team So Far

With the first round of the NBA playoffs nearing its halfway point, much has played out according to pre-playoff expectations, and that’s been good news for the better-seeded team in each series. Six of eight matchups have had double-digit average per-game victory margins; hell, the San Antonio Spurs have thumped the Memphis Grizzlies by an average of 29 points per game. It’s a massacre out there.But not everything has followed that pattern. Using our Elo ratings (which measure a team’s strength at a given moment), we found the teams that have exceeded their regular-season expectations the most since the playoffs tipped off last weekend. And even given the lack of first-round surprises so far, some teams have managed to raise eyebrows with their play, as we highlight in the video below:Chief among those teams: the Miami Heat, who are, um, torching [One of you owes me 20 push-ups. — Ed.] the Charlotte Hornets in their series thus far. Although our model expected Miami to win by 3.9 points per game, the Heat have prevailed by an average margin of 22 a game. With guys like Hassan Whiteside and Justise Winslow in the mix, you might think the Heat’s defense — stingy during the regular season — is behind this run. But no, it’s an unstoppable offense that’s driving the Heat’s blowouts.That Heat attack is averaging 1.24 points per play, according to Synergy Sports Technology; that’s the best of any team in the playoffs. According to data from the NBA’s player-tracking SportVU tech, Miami’s pick-and-roll performance has jumped from 91.1 points per 100 chances created by those plays during the regular season to 121.8 per 100 chances in the playoffs. Luol Deng is hitting 55 percent of his 3-pointers; Whiteside is shooting 88 percent around the rim; and Dwyane Wade is scoring 22 points per game with an assortment of crafty, old-man moves.Josh Richardson is perhaps most emblematic of the Heat getting, well, hot [Forty. — Ed.]. The rookie averaged only 21 minutes over 52 games this regular season, but he’s second on the Heat in minutes during the playoffs and, according to Synergy, is tied for the league lead in spot-up attempts — and leads outright in makes.As a team, the Heat are shooting out of their minds. So on to the natural question: Can this last? According to SportVU data that estimates shot difficulty using variables such as location, shot distance and the defender’s proximity, the Heat are taking extremely difficult shots — their playoff shot selection is of a similar difficulty to the Minnesota Timberwolves’ during the regular season, which was third-worst in the league. The difference is, their effective field goal percentage on those shots is 14.2 percentage points higher than you’d expect, given the types of shots they’re taking. (For reference, no team finished the regular season more than 4.1 percentage points better than expectation.)But although the Heat will probably cool off [I’ll just let you know when you can stop. — Ed.] before their series against Charlotte is over, our predictions now list them as 82 percent favorites to advance into the second round. If Miami gets there, a matchup against Toronto — which has underperformed its own expectations in the first round — seems likely, so we might even get to witness a fun experiment in whether “momentum” can carry over from one round to the next.Check out FiveThirtyEight’s 2016 NBA Playoff Predictions. read more

Mens swimming Ohio State set to swim backtoback dual meets

Credit: Sydney McNulty | Lantern reporterThe Ohio State men’s swimming team is set to compete in back-to-back dual meets this weekend, starting on Friday at Michigan State and continuing in Columbus on Saturday, hosting the University of Pittsburgh.The Buckeyes head to East Lansing, Michigan, after a dominant performance against Cincinnati, setting three pool records at Keating Aquatic Center.Carrying that momentum is vital heading into a double header, graduate senior Josh Fleagle said.“It’s definitely not easy,” he said. “We just take it one practice at a time, one meet at a time and we look forward to new challenges, competition and we love racing.”It will be a quick turnaround, but Fleagle believes the team’s experience will give the Buckeyes an upper hand.“When we go to Big Tens and NCAAs, it’s four or five days of just swimming,” he said. “So two days isn’t that bad, granted we will get back a little bit later on Friday from Michigan State. But we are pretty used to it.”The Buckeyes will swim against the Spartans for the first time this season. Senior Matt McHugh said the results of the meet will give some insight into the team’s level of conditioning.“It’ll be good to see how we go up against Michigan State in a dual meet,” he said. “It’s a good indication to see where we need to improve, and what events we need to put certain people in.”In facing both a conference and a out of conference opponent this weekend, the Buckeyes are keeping the same mindset: competition is competition, said Fleagle.“I think right now the positivity is really up and obviously, the goal is to get best times in everything we do,” he said.Competition is scheduled to start at 5 p.m. on Friday and at noon on Saturday. read more

What happened to Ohio State quarterback JT Barrett during the 3120 win

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett helped off the field in the third quarter of the Buckeyes’ game against Michigan Saturday. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorANN ARBOR, Mich. — Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer was not worried about injuries. He had no reason for concern. The game had not begun. Yet, nearing the game’s noon kickoff, he was told his quarterback, redshirt senior J.T. Barrett, was on the ground.“I look on the sideline and he’s down,” Meyer said after his team’s 31-20 win against Michigan Saturday. “And I’m like, ‘What happened?’”One of the hundreds of media members with cameras on the sidelines had hit his quarterback with a camera, knocking his knee, Meyer said with a rarely seen fury.“Somebody just tried to squeeze through I guess just to not get close to our bench which is fine,” Barrett said. “I don’t really care as long as you don’t hit me, and he hit me and my knee kind of just shifted in and, like I said, twisted up on me and we were able to lock it out before the game, but that’s how it was.”Meyer ominously said, with dozens of photographers and videographers in the press conference room, he plans to find out who hurt Barrett. He seemed unable to comprehend how something like that could happen to his star quarterback, muttering “major college football” over and over. “Too many damn people on the sideline,” Meyer said with disdain.Meyer has reason for his anger. He was worried Barrett, who was looking to become the first quarterback in the history of the rivalry to win four games, would not be able to play through the injury. But he sent Barrett into the game, anyway. “He’s so tough, he went out there and played and obviously we didn’t do very well and then we got going and then tied things up at 14,” Meyer said.In nearly three quarters behind center, Barrett completed just 3-of-8 passes for 30 yards. Without much success in the air, Barrett took to the Buckeyes’ ground attack. He had 15 rushes — third-most in any game this season — for 67 yards, including a 21-yard scramble for a touchdown in the second quarter. He led two scoring drives, but Barrett also accumulated minus-three yards combined on his other seven drives as quarterback.Then, with 6:07 remaining in the third quarter and his team down six points, Barrett fell to the ground after a 10-yard rush and the rowdy crowd quieted. Trainers helped Barrett up. But rather than have them look at him on the sideline, Barrett walked back to the locker room. His night was over. He returned to his team on the sideline in the fourth quarter, but did not have his helmet.Meyer said Barrett’s knee “locked up” when the person with the camera hit the quarterback, but the trainers managed to “unlock” it. However, they could not manage to “unlock” it during the third quarter when Barrett reaggravated the injury, Meyer said.“I mean before it happened the second time I looked like, running, cutting, playing, throwing the ball — like all that was fine, so it hasn’t affected me,” Barrett said. “It’s just in those little moments when it happens and then today I wasn’t able to pop it back in so it’s not injured. “I’ll play next week,” Barrett added.This was not the first time Barrett has aggravated his knee injury, he said. Barrett said he dealt with this injury earlier in the season in Ohio State’s 49-21 season-opening win against Indiana.He said he has played with the issue for the entire year. “When it happened in a game, I’d just lock my leg out and it’d pop back in and I’d continue to play,” Barrett said. “I didn’t need to go run into the trainer’s and tell anybody, like I was good and I felt fine running around cutting. Meyer did not offer an update on Barrett’s status following the win against the Wolverines, unlike Barrett.Whether Meyer makes the decision to start Barrett or replace him with Haskins next week, who looked solid in three drives that totalled 10 points, has not been determined. Given Barrett’s experience, it is hard to imagine Meyer would turn to Haskins with the season winding down, especially since Barrett said he will play in the Big Ten championship game against Wisconsin on Saturday. Barrett had not missed any snaps this season due to injury, so how someone with a camera running into him reaggravated the issue remains unclear. Meyer said he’s “going to find out who” injured Barrett and “think about that.” read more
