White Hot: Big Game for Deng, Hassanity Continues

<i>Stats: 34 Min, 6-10 FG, 1-2 3FG, 5-7 FT, 4 REB, 1 AST, 2 STL, 0 BLK, 2 TO, 18 PTS</i><br /> Luol Deng had as good a game as he can on this current version of the Heat. Without Dwyane Wade, this team has no idea how to get the ball to Deng where or when he needs it. A few times, Deng took it upon himself to create. Granted that’s not his strength, it’s better than what they got. The Heat needed this game from Deng, and someone to say “you know what, screw it. I’m scoring” and they almost came away with the win.. SF. Miami Heat. LUOL DENG. A-

A+. <i>Stats: 36 Min, 12-13 FG, 0-0 3FG, 0-0 FT, 20 REB, 0 AST, 3 STL, 2 BLK, 4 TO, 24 PTS </i><br /> Hassan Whiteside keeps going out there and breaking records. Tonight, he became the only player along with Dwight Howard, Dikembe Mutombo, Charles Barkley and Wilt Chamberlain to shoot 90-plus percent from the field with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds.. C. Miami Heat. HASSAN WHITESIDE
