The staggering truth about the Miami Heat's starting lineup statistics

Is the Miami Heat starting lineup really that good together? We eagerly expected all off-season. The Miami Heat staring lineup that never had a chance to play together last season. On paper, one that seemed to be one of the best in the league. But now, on the stats sheet, one that is struggling. Hey, maybe it's why Erik Spoelstra has helped facilitate Hassan Whiteside to the bench recently, but we are going to look at the Heat's starting lineup numbers and show you what is wrong. First, let me give credit -- all of the numbers and data I am drawing from are coming...

Stream: Heat end trip with win over Charlotte behind Whiteside's triple double

Hassan Whiteside had another big impact off the bench in a total team victory against a tenacious Hornets team. ESPN ranked Hassan Whiteside fifth in a recent list of the most overrated NBA players. Since returning back from an oblique injury that knocked him out of action for six straight games, the Miami Heat will gladly take his supposed empty stats after he recorded his third triple-double of the season in victory. It was the fourth overall in his career with double-digit totals in points, rebounds and blocked shots. This time he did it off the bench with 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10...

10 Stars: Heat 98, Hornets 95

The inherent fallibility of statistics leaves Hassan Whiteside and his triple-double off the Five Stars. Five Stars is a series where I turn the focus to the five players who achieved the highest GameScore for each contest, regardless of team affiliation. Last night's game left Hassan Whiteside at number seven despite a triple-double, resulting in my one-time decision to make today's article a 10 Stars. First Star Marvin Williams (CHA) 22.4 11-year veteran forward Williams scored a game-high 27 points for the Hornets on a crisp 12-of-17 shooting performance from the field. He earned a...
