Hassan Whiteside stepped up big time on a night the Heat only had ten players dressed. To notch his third career triple-double with a monster line of 19 points, 17 rebounds and 11 blocks. Helping Miami to come from 18 points down to beat Denver.
“I see a lot of NBA players getting triple doubles with assists. Ain’t nobody doing it with blocks,” Whiteside said. “I hope the fans enjoyed it. A lot of people, I don’t put numbers up they like, they say, ‘Hassan is lazy.’ I was going through a lot with [knee] tendinitis.”
