- Bradford Doolittle
Some of the perceived differences between regular-season and playoff basketball are more myth than reality, but one distinction that is indisputably true and universal to every team in the postseason is that rotations shrink. Most coaches will lop at least one, maybe two, players from a standard 10-man regular-season rotation. With the grueling, 82-game reality of constant travel and back-to-back games behind us, we'll get to see more of the best players on each team.
Bradford Doolittle looks at which teams stand to gain the most from shorter rotations in the playoffs. If you're the Miami Heat, that just means more of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
