Ever since he signed his 5-year, $90 million contract extension with the Miami Heat, Duncan Robinson has been the subject of many memes and tweets about being overpaid. The sharpshooter has not lived up to that kind of deal.

Since signing the deal after an impressive performance in the Miami Heat’s run to the finals in the NBA bubble and a strong 2020-2021 season. But, his scoring average has gone from over 13 points a game to just 6.4 this year, and found himself out the Miami Heat rotation at times.

But, with the injury to star guard Tyler Herro in the first game of the playoffs, nearly two months ago against the Milwaukee Bucks, Duncan Robinson has been thrust into playoff action. And, he’s responded, shooting 43% from three, and also showing the ability to attack the rim for the first time in the undrafted free agent’s career at age 29.

And, he had his best moment of the run in Sunday’s game 2 of the 2023 NBA Finals. With the Heat trailing by 8 points heading into the fourth quarter and staring going down 2-0 in the face, Duncan Robinson took over. He scored 10 points in the first 2:16 of the final frame, as the Heat stormed into the lead and held off a furious Nuggets charge to win, 111-108.

And, Twitter is full of praise from the Michigan alum, who started his college career at Division III Williams College.

The Heat are going to need more of the same from Duncan Robinson if they want to win this series.
