Is Michael Beasley Struggling?

For the fourth time in five games, Beasley was on the bench for all or most of the fourth quarter as the Heat rallied from 17 points behind Toronto on Wednesday before falling 101-95.

The 6-9 Beasley played just three minutes in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game at Toronto.

"We had a lineup that came back from a 17-point (deficit)," Beasley said Wednesday. "If I was the coach, I would have stayed with that lineup, too."

Beasley played just 12 minutes and scored seven points Wednesday. The previous night in Washington he logged 16 minutes, finishing with six points.
