Nikola Mirotic saw just 19 minutes of action in Friday’s 118-96 loss to the Heat, scoring six points on 1-of-4 shooting with three rebounds, one assist and one steal.
Maybe it was the SEGABABA or perhaps the blowout loss clipped a few minutes he’d have normally seen late in the fourth quarter. Mirotic has been doing just fine since returning and owners shouldn’t panic over one bad night. His counterpart Taj Gibson kept his late-round credentials with 13 points, six rebounds, two assists and one block in 25 minutes. Pau Gasol nearly triple-doubled with 17 points, 12 rebounds, nine assists, two blocks, two threes and six turnovers in the loss.
