On Tuesday night, the Miami Heat got throttled by the Milwaukee Bucks, 91-79. Despite a game where the Bucks led most of the way, Hassan Whiteside scored 23 points — tying Chris Bosh for the game-high. He was also an ultra-efficient 8-of-9 from the field on his way to those points and added 18 rebounds — seven offensive — with two blocks. By every statistical metric, it was a dominant performance; except, like we mentioned, the Heat got rolled and Whiteside got embarrassed by the Greek Freak. Why do we mention this?
Because Rudy Gobert took to his Twitter feed on Tuesday night, too, and he appeared to call out empty stats — like the kind Whiteside put up against the Bucks.
Except, Magic center Nikola Vucevic, who has been the Orlando’s leading scorer and rebounder the last two seasons, the former of which was again a lottery team, took offense. He wanted Gobert to give a name, and even questioned his manhood.
