4. Jaime Jaquez Jr

The 23-year-old rookie Jaime Jaquez Jr. has seen an extended role in the Heat's rotation since Jimmy Butler went down with his MCL sprain. He has started in his place at the small forward position and has put together some really solid outings since. In game 2 at TD Garden, he recorded 14 points, two rebounds and a steal on 3 for 6 from deep.

Jaquez has been a streaky shooter from distance throughout the season, but it was raining threes for Miami, and he looked confident in his shot. He may be a rookie, but he has shown that he is another supporting cast player who isn't afraid of the big moment. His minutes have been crucial to roundout the Heat's starting unit in the last three games dating back to last week's play-in against the Chicago Bulls.
