Hassan Whiteside made a loud and emphatic statement on Wednesday night. His near triple-double with 29 points, 20 rebounds and 9 blocks helped the Heat sink the Spurs 95-88. 

"It would have been pretty cool for him to get that triple-double," said head coach Erik Spoelstra after the game. 

His 8 blocks in the opening 24 minutes set a Heat franchise record for most blocked shots in a half. 

Sure, his performance was impressive, but how about some context. It was really, really, really impressive.
