It’s doubtful there’s a more popular reserve player in the NBA than Andersen, who has captivated Heat fans over the past three months. In games Andersen has played, Miami has gone a staggering 41-3, including having taken a 2-0 lead over Milwaukee in an Eastern Conference first-round series.
After his signing, it didn’t take long for Andersen to captivate fans. While his averages of 4.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.05 blocks in 14.9 minutes in 42 regular-season games might not look overwhelming, he provided enormous bursts of energy off the bench as the Heat won 39 of those games. Andersen has been even better in the playoffs, averaging 10.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 0.5 block while shooting 8 of 10 in the two games against the Bucks.
