Heat Produced: Miami 117, Sacramento 97

The Heat Produced Page has been updated with stats from the Heat's win over the Kings on Tuesday night.

Twitter commentary for the game can be found HERE and HERE.

Here's the stat that tells it all - the Heat only took 11 free throws because the Kings didn't even care enough to foul them as they made drive after drive to the rim. Dwyane Wade alone averages 11 free throw attempts per 48 minutes.

The most productive players for the Heat were Chris Bosh with 0.378 estimated wins produced in 35.1 minutes and Wade with 0.349 estimated wins produced in 35.5 minutes.

Least productive player for the Heat was Jamaal Magloire with -0.082 estimated wins produced in four minutes.

Estimated Wins Produced analysis of the entire boxscore can be found after the jump.

This article will use Win Score and Estimated Wins Produced, statistical models created by Professor David Berri from the Wages of Wins Journal, to measure how much a player's box score statistics contributed to their team's efficiency differential and wins. An average player produces 0.100 wins per 48 minutes (WP48), a star player produces 0.200+ WP48 and a superstar produces 0.300+ WP48.
