Up: Duncan Robinson ⬆️

With Tyler Herro sidelined for the last three games with a hyperextended knee, Robinson has once again stepped into the starting lineup and, once again, is thriving playing alongside Miami’s other starters.

Robinson is averaging 15.5 points and 4.7 assists while shooting 49.2% overall and 50% on 3s – and that’s including an 0 for 6 stinker in Sacramento. But what makes 55 different this season is that, when his shot isn’t falling, he can still make an impact.

With Terry Rozier and Herro out for that win over the Kings, Robinson took on a facilitating role and dished a career-high 11 assists. Five were to Adebayo (the Bam-Duncan two-man game remains strong) and four were to Kevin Love. Look at this play from Monday night -- a five-out offense with Robinson, Jaime Jaquez Jr., Caleb Martin, Haywood Highsmith and Love on the court. This looks more like the Boston Celtics than a Miami Heat possession.
