Spoelstra Testing Miami’s ‘Big 5′ Lineup?
Erik Spoelstra is tired of talking about his player rotation, and wary of revealing too much of the plan to upcoming opponents.
“Some of that is pretty obvious, the direction that we’re going,” the Heat coach said. “It’s self-explanatory.”
Yet some of his players have privately expressed as much confusion as many fans, unclear about their roles going forward.
What’s been clear from the last two games of significance, at Chicago and at New York, is that one of Spoelstra’s primary objectives is to get to the so-called “Big 5″ lineup that was dominant in the 2011 Eastern Conference finals but had been used in only two games until this past week.
