Head coach Erik Spoelstra says Caleb Martin has become the solid third defender that the Miami Heat have been looking for next to Jimmy Butler & Bam Adebayo (1.1 SPG).
(via Bally Sports Sun):
“His versatility is vital to our group. Night after night, after night, he’s taking on all the different kind of challenges that this league can present. Whether he’s guarding the small, super quick guys, or whether he’s guarding the bigger wings, or then he’s switching onto centers. He has great instincts for deflections and steals. Our defense always just seems to be a whole lot more active and fast when he’s out on the court. He’s a playmaker out there, what truly fits with Jimmy [Butler] & Bam [Adebayo].”
