Mike Budenholzer Planned On Extending Giannis Antetokounmpo's Minutes In Game 4 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Sep 16, 2020 6:20 pm

Mike Budenholzer had planned on playing Giannis Antetokounmpo big minutes beginning with Game 4, a source tell Eric Nehm and Sam Amick of The Athletic.


Antetokounmpo averaged 36 minutes in the first three Heat games, but the right ankle sprain in Game 3 changed the course of the series.


Antetokounmpo played 11.5 of the first 14 minutes in Game 4 before aggravating the injury and missing the rest of the series. 


Budenholzer received considerable criticism from continuing to limit Antetokounmpo's minutes.
