Buying or Selling the Miami Heat's Most Surprising Stats After NBA's First Month
Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports
LeBron James is at the center of many of the Miami Heat's most surprising statistics in 2013-14.

One month into the 2013-14 NBA season, it's no surprise to see the Miami Heat near the top of the Eastern Conference.

After dropping three of their first six games, the Heat bounced back with 10 straight wins, rocketing to second place in the East. They're behind only the Indiana Pacers, San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail Blazers in terms of the league's best records.

Though Miami's rise back to the top was seemingly inevitable, the way the team accomplished that feat wasn't entirely predictable. After all, who could have foreseen Michael Beasley having the second-best PER of any Heat player through the first week of December?

Let's look at some of Miami's most surprising statistics through Dec. 4, then determine whether they're maintainable (buying) or fluky (selling).

 

Note: All statistics and records are current through games played on Dec. 4. Unless otherwise noted, all advanced statistics come from Basketball-Reference.com or NBA.com/stats.
