“When we bring Ben off the bench, virtually every play is run for Ben,” Frank said. “It’s just different personnel out there. Plus, off the bench, he’s not playing 40 minutes a night. So I think from a mental standpoint, when you know you have a longer leash, you probably don’t put as much pressure on yourself to make that first shot, because Ben missed his first couple of shots and turned down the first shot of the game we ran for him.
“To me, it’s not necessarily plays, because literally, when he’s in there, we call his number every single play.”
