The small forward for the Miami Heat is a player that changes radically when Playoffs come up. He changes his mentality and can be the best player of his team. The franchise from Florida gets stronger when Duncan Robinson shines and so their chances to make it through the knockouts increase potentially.
Three point shots are his main strength:
We just have to take a look at his stats. This regular season he has averaged 10.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists, which fit in with his average numbers throughout his career. Furthermore, he has finished with a 37% of accuracy on triples.
However, this really changes during Playoffs, as this percentage increases to 41,7%. In addition, we must take into account his role into the team, as he belongs to the second unit.
In their victory against the Atlanta Hawks in Game 1, Duncan Robinson finished with 27 points with an incredible efficiency at shooting: 9 out of 10 three point shots attempts.
With these stats, the small forward has become into the player with the most efficiency in the history of the Playoffs. Moreover, this is the highest stat of a Heat’s player in a Playoff game.
The Miami Heat increase their winning chances:
After finishing first in the tight Eastern Conference, The Miami Heat are battling to advance to the next round in the Playoffs against the Atlanta Hawks, as they qualified after beating the Charlotte Hornets and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Play-in.
With a victory in the first game of the series (115-91), the Heat are going through a good momentum and they are likely to make it through.
In case they get the win, they will face off the Philadelphia 76ers of Joel Embiid and James Harden or the Toronto Raptors. The Heat are a very complete team where the outstanding performances from players such as Duncan Robinson can make the difference in this last part of the season.
