After the Heat requested Dion Waiters up his efficiency earlier in the week, he responded by going 8-of-12 en route to 22 points, four threes and five assists in Wednesday’s loss.
While Waiters can get hot like this on any given night, the Heat’s edict for him to improve the shot selection should tell you most of the story. He’s a top-150 guy this year despite being drafted in the late-middle rounds and has never had a solid enough floor to lock in his standard league appeal. Waiters is definitely worth using while he’s hot but the rest of his games have the potential to do more harm than good. Hopefully this is the start of an upswing for him.
