Former Gator Udonis Haslem had an interesting weekend.

 

After dominating Milwaukee on Saturday, posting 16 points on 8-of-9 shooting and adding 12 rebounds, two steals and two assists in the 102-85 win, Haslem was cut on Monday.

 

Literally.

 

In the closing moments of a home loss to Orlando, Haslem took an elbow to the left eye that required him to head to the locker room to receive seven stitches. He missed a crucial run in the fourth quarter that all but sealed the Heat defeat.

David Lee logged yet another double-double for New York in Monday's 112-104 loss to the Jazz. Lee finished with 21 points, 10 rebounds and three steals.

 

Lee has had double-double performances in all five games since sitting out a contest at Orlando with a sore knee earlier this month.

Mike Miller picked up a start over the weekend in a victory over New Jersey and made the best out of the extra minutes.

 

The fifth-year pro logged 38 minutes, pouring in 22 points to go with 10 rebounds and five assists.
