Josh Richardson scored 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting with seven rebounds, three assists, five steals and two blocks over 38 minutes in Friday’s overtime loss to the Pelicans.
Richardson has benefited from a general thinning out of the Heat rotation but he has also empowered himself to take more shots and generally taken another step forward. That he was able to have a big night while Dwyane Wade (16 points, 20 shots) was so active is also another nice sign. Hassan Whiteside went for 19 & 16 with a steal and block in the loss.
