Ellington scored 21 points and made six 3-pointers off the bench, Goran Dragic added 20 points and the Miami rode a season-best shooting performance from behind the arc to a 109-97 victory over the Timberwolves on Friday night. “He’s ignitable and he always has been,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “He hits two then he’s going for three and the whole team is looking for him. He has that kind of feel, but he exudes that energy. It’s hard to explain. Guys know and feel when somebody’s ignitable and you look for him.”
Starting guards Goran Dragic and Dion Waiters spent the two days leading up to Wednesday’s game asking for better screens. Hassan Whiteside responded to their request by pointing the finger back at them after Tuesday’s practice, urging them to be patient when using his screens. “Me and Dion were in the paint all night. I felt like Hassan was great,” Dragic said after the victory. “I even told him after the game. When he’s setting these kind of screens, it makes my job and Dion’s job so much easier because we have more time to create, to read the defense.”
Just one day after Dion Waiters and Erik Spoelstra pointed to the Heat’s screen-setting as an issue, center Hassan Whiteside had another take on the subject. “I mean, it’s just, it’s just, man, the guys aren’t being patient,” Whiteside said when asked about the issue after Tuesday’s practice. “Me and D-Wade showed that all year long. We ain’t had no problems. It’s just being patient, man, just be patient, wait for the screen and let guys set you up and make decisions. There’s so many lobs and those lobs just don’t make themselves. It has to be something.”
