Hassan Whiteside has gone from some guy to that guy who had a ridiculous triple double and awesome post-game interview to a guy who had a really great week to a go-to guy on Sunday.
“He drew up a play and I scored on it, he just kept drawing them up,” said Whiteside who scored 20 points against the Celtics. “I really think he started believing I can make plays down there.”
Whiteside also had 9 points and 3 blocks – but didn’t have much luck blocking this dunk by Bass.
Oh well, if you are going to challenge shots then you are going to get dunked on. But I don’t think Whiteside or his teammates are going to complain about him ending up on the bottom of a poster every once in while, especially when he’s playing like a guy who could be a future All-Star in the league.
“He continues to surprise me,” Bosh said. “He’s a talented young fellow. We want to continue to push him and encourage him to play and do well.”
