Haywood Highsmith scores 15 w/ 3 triples ThursdayMay 25, 2023 | 07:55 PM
Haywood Highsmith logged 35 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Celtics, going for 15 points (6-of-9 FG), two rebounds, an assist, two steals and three triples.
Analysis: Through 15 prior playoff games, Highsmith averaged just 7.4 minutes with four DNP-CDs. With Gabe Vincent out and the Celtics rolling for most of the evening, Erik Spoelstra gave Highsmith his fourth-most minutes of the entire season and his most of the postseason by a country mile. If Vincent sits again Saturday, Highsmith could remain in the rotation, but we wouldn't count on him replicating Thursday's performance.
