Kendrick Nunn will come off bench for the first time in his NBA career in Tuesday's Game 1 against the Pacers.
It is still unclear who will be replacing Nunn in the starting lineup, though best bet is on Goran Dragic. The move to the bench is a sign the Heat may be worried about the Rookie of the Year finalist's playoff inexperience. A bench role reduces Nunn's playtime, but gives him an opportunity to be the primary scorer in the second unit. Nunn has never been afraid to shoot, so if his shots drop he should still deliver a decent amount of points for owners.
