With Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler still out with injuries, the Miami Heat have seen multiple players contribute, giving them much-needed production from the bench. One of these players has been Caleb Martin, who had his second career double-double against the Atlanta Hawks.
It was his first double-double this season. He also added in a taste of what has come to be known as his patented athleticism on a cutting jam from Omer Yurtseven.
He would finish with 18 points, 10 rebounds, at 50 percent shooting from the field, and at just over 33 percent from behind the arc in the 33 minutes of action for that game.
In the 31 games he has played for the Miami Heat this season, he is averaging 9.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.0 assists per game, while shooting 50.5 percent from the field and 36.8 percent from behind the arc.
Martin is doing much more than your typical two-way player should be doing. Not only is he giving you production on the offensive side of the ball, but he has taken on the task of some of the toughest covers in the league as well.
He’s guarding them effectively and efficiently too, looking beyond decent against the likes of guys such as Stephen Curry and Trae Young.
