MIAMI -- Heat coach Erik Spoelstra calls Rashard Lewis' latest performance "basically, one of my favorite stat lines of all time."
The box score from Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals says Lewis did basically nothing in his 17 minutes of action Saturday. Lewis had no points, no rebounds, no assists and no steals in Miami's 99-87 win over Indiana -- and the Heat outscored the Pacers by 21 points when the veteran forward was in the game, mainly as a defender.
According to STATS, since plus-minus started being charted, no one ever was better than a plus-10 in an NBA playoff game without generating any points, rebounds, assists or steals.
Game 4 is Monday night, with the Heat holding a 2-1 lead in the series.
