NBA playoffs 2018: Hassan Whiteside laments lack of minutes again after Heat eliminated

Hassan Whiteside felt he was short changed again after the Heat lost Game 5 to the 76ers 104-91 Tuesday.

The Miami center complained after the game about his lack of minutes — he only was on the court for 10 — saying he didn't get the opportunity to play hard.

"At least give me a chance to fight," Whiteside said. "I can understand if I was playing 30 minutes and I played bad. At least give me a chance."

Whiteside scored just two points on 0-for-4 shooting and had five rebounds. Teammate Dwyane Wade heard Whiteside's complaints and called him out for his remarks, saying to stop making complaints.

"Hopefully he gets motivated from this series," Wade told reporters.

Whiteside's lack of minutes has been an ongoing issue, with him complaining multiple times on how he wants to be out on the court longer.
