The Heat can pretty much do whatever they want for the rest of the season and still make the playoffs, and one of those things that they did was start Luke Babbitt tonight. They don’t care! They know that the Pistons will never put things together enough to take their playoff spot, so why not let BabBeast start the game and see what he can do?
It didn’t work, so they replaced him with Tyler Johnson to start the second half. Teams almost never do that, even if the replacable starter did horribly. There must be some unwritten rule somewhere that says you have to keep your lineups the same to start the halves, and if there is, the Heat just totally broke it.
Shame on them.
