Dion Waiters shot 6-of-10 on Monday, posting 14 points, four rebounds and eight assists as the Heat topped the Hornets.
Not bad for 26 minutes of work, and the assists were really nice to see from a guy who’s typically regarded as a nothing-else scorer. It helped that Goran Dragic was out, to be sure, but Waiters actually averaged 4.3 assists last season. We’re expecting a step back from last season’s big finish, however, as Waiters needs lots of percentage-killing volume to deliver on his promise as a contributor in points and threes.
