Two statistical notes entering Friday's game against the Celtics...
Heat forward Udonis Haslem needs five rebounds to tie Rony Seikaly (1,474) for second on the Heat's all-time career list for offensive rebounds. Haslem has started 58 games this season and is averaging 4.1 rebounds per game. While it's his lowest rebounding average since his rookie season, Haslem's activity rate remains high. He is averaging 10.4 rebounds per 36 minutes.
Haslem missed Wednesday's game against the Wizards but expects to play on Friday. He leads the team in charges (28) despite playing averaging just 18.8 minutes of work. Below is a chart of the Heat's all-time leaders in offensive rebounds entering this season. Haslem leads the franchise in overall rebounds (5,154), which is the fourth highest in NBA/ABA history by an undrafted player.
LeBron James needs eight points to reach 2,000 points for his season. James has scored more 2,000 points seven times in his career, or every season except his rookie year and the lockout-shortened season.
