Glen Davis and George Hill played 10 min more in playoffs than regular season as single game career high.
Single game career high for Glen Davis: regular season (43 min), playoffs (53 min), difference +10 min.
Single game career high for George Hill: regular season (35 min), playoffs (45 min), difference +10 min.
This is the biggest difference for active players (who played in 2010-11 season).

... the biggest difference in single game career high for points in playoffs than regular season?
...
Anthony Johnson: regular season (27), playoffs (40), difference +13 pts
John Havlicek: regular season (43), playoffs (54), difference +11 pts

That Havlicek never had more than 43 points in a regular season game is somewhat surprising. He averaged 29 points one year and 27.5 in another.

Anthony Johnson, filling in for Jamaal Tinsley, was one of the few Indiana players in the 2005-06 season who was not injured for a large part of the season. His 1980 minutes was 2nd most on the team, and in the playoffs he led all Pacers with 40 mpg.

In the season, he was 11th on the team in points per minute, just 12.6 per 36. But by game 6 of the first round playoff series vs New Jersey, the team was without game 1 starters Jeff Foster and Peja Stojakovich; and of course without Tinsley or any other semblance of a point guard.

Their go-to scorers, Stephen Jackson and Austin Croshere, were a combined 4-18 in game 6, and AJ pretty much carried the team to a final minute defeat (96-90). Forty points on 27 attempts. Also 5 boards and 5 assists.

Johnson's career PER is a paltry 11.2 in regular seasons. In playoffs, it's 12.3. In 2006, it was 19.6

In 1970-71 John Havlicek averaged 28.9 points per game. His high game that year was only 39 which he scored
on three separate occasions.
His game scores were 31, 25, 23, 38, 33, 32, 20, 13, 33, 33, 37, 30, 37, 31, 27, 20, 30, 18, 28, 32, 33, 25, 38, 25, 26,
39, 38, 34, 29, 32, 26, 36, 34, 33, 25, 32, 29, 22, 21, 27, 29, 18, 32, 39, 34, 27, 29, dnp, 31, 11,
22, 36, 29, 26, 27, 31, 20, 28, 26, 32, 33, 23, 36, 36, 39, 28, 24, 37, 32, 28, 32, 21, 26, 27, 37,
37, 15, 30, 27, 27, 28, 24

Very consistent scoring.

I wonder if anyone else has scored at least 30 points, as many as 39 times in a season, without hitting 40.
There were 5 games in which he was at least 11 points below his average, and none when he was 11 over.

Active players:
Steve Nash: regular season (16), playoffs (20), difference +4 fgm

John Havlicek: regular season (18), playoffs (24), difference +6 fgm
Anthony Johnson: regular season (10), playoffs (16), difference +6 fgm
Those guys again!

Steve Nash, with Phoenix against his former team, Dallas, hit 20-28 FG, including 4-6 three-pointers. However, the Mavs won this 4th game to tie the series at 2 apiece. The Suns then won the next 2. That was 2005.

Nash had 48 points in the game, and his 20 FG might be considered equivalent to 22, since 4 of them were worth 1.5 each.
Which active player (who played in 2010-11 season) has the biggest difference in single game career high for defensive reb. in playoffs than regular season?
Active players:
Caron Butler, Steve Nash, Jermaine O'Neal, Kendrick Perkins +2 def.reb
Nash, with his only playoff triple-double, had 34 pts, 13 rebounds, and 12 ast, in the game immediately after the one described above.
Stoudemire had 33-18, Marion 16-10, leading the Suns to a 56-42 rebound advantage and a 3-2 series lead.

Which active player (who played in 2010-11 season) has the biggest difference in single game career high for blocks in playoffs than regular season?
Active players:
James Jones: regular season (4), playoffs (6), difference +2 blk
These are startling numbers, as James Jones has averaged but 0.4 blocks per game in his career.
It seems he's gotten more than 2 blocks in just 3 of his 447 regular season games, and once he got 4 -- in '08 for the Suns.

In both seasons and playoffs, he's averaged 19 minutes per game.
In his 64 playoff games, one would not expect him to get more than 2 blocks in a game, let alone 6.
In just over 1/3 of those games, he registered a block, and 3 times he got more than 1.
Just one time over 2: in 2006 vs Dallas he had 6 in just 23 minutes.
(They lost that game and the series.)

For perspective, other players who have a playoff high of 6 blocks, and just one time: Garnett, Ilgauskas, LaFrentz, Marion, Nance, Jermaine O'Neal, Ratliff, Salley, Chris Anderson, Pau Gasol.
