The Miami Heat seemingly faced an uphill battle going against the Atlanta Hawks in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference playoff series without its starting point guard, Kyle Lowry, who was ruled out with a hamstring injury. However, there was no need to worry.

The Heat absolutely dominated the Hawks with a 110-86 win on Sunday, April 24, and while Gabe Vincent filled in for Lowry in the starting lineup, head coach Erik Spoelstra also gave guard Victor Oladipo a chance to record his first postseason minutes. He closed the night with six points, eight rebounds, and four assists.

While Oladipo delivering meaningful minutes won’t come as a huge surprise, the two-time All-Star put up 40 points against the Orlando Magic during his last game appearance on April 10, Spoelstra didn’t commit to playing him prior to tipoff, and Bam Adebayo made it clear that Vincent was Lowry’s true backup — not Oladipo.

There was also doubt that Oladipo would see any action due to a recent report from Fox Sports 1’s Skip Bayless, who said during an appearance on his show, Undisputed: Skip and Shannon, that there’s a calculated reason for why the 29-year-old guard was being kept on the sidelines. According to his sources, he wasn’t playing because Heat starter Jimmy Butler refuses to share the court with him.
