Hassan Whiteside downplayed the 12-minute workload he received in Saturday's game vs. the 76ers.
"Kelly Olynyk was playing well. Of course, I would love to be out there rebounding and blocking shots and be out there with my teammates. But I think K.O. was playing well so coach just wanted to get him out there." Everything coming out of Whiteside's mouth sounds good right now as he looks far more professional than he did in late March when he burned the Heat organization for not playing him heavy minutes. With Joel Embiid (face) ruled out for Game 2 it'll be interesting to see if coach Erik Spoelstra lets Whiteside go out and dominate.
