Math is everywhere! Even with the Miami Heat lineup!

I told you many times that math is everywhere! Even with the Heat! Coach using combination of lineups with his 3 superstars to maximize their talents to get wins. As a Miami Heat fan, math is even more beautiful when applied to one of my favorites basketball team. Go HEAT!

Spoelstra's new math adds up for LeBron, Wade, Bosh

The Miami Heat's Big Three are winning together to a degree because of how coach Erik Spoelstra has kept them apart.
With 3:26 to play in the first quarter, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh left the court together.

At the start of the second quarter, it was LeBron James who was out, with Wade and Bosh back in. Shortly after James returned, Wade and Bosh went to the bench.
The pattern was the same in the second half, with Wade and Bosh checking out with 2:46 to play in the third quarter and then opening the fourth quarter together while James was on the bench.
"I was just looking for something to break it up," Spoelstra said of the long division when it came to the playing time of his three stars. "I was playing LeBron 14, 15 straight minutes and I didn't want to do that. So I just decided to sit him out after the first-quarter break and to do that, I wanted to keep as many of the other guys on the court as possible.
The approach has allowed each star to have their moments of focus, while also keeping them fresh enough to finish together.
"That is a tough balance, where they can be who they've been for years and been so successful and yet strike a balance," Spoelstra said.
"That's the purpose and the reason for us three coming together, to have that dynamic of if one guy's going great, if other guys are going great," Wade said. "That's why we have different lineups.
