WATCH: Hassan Whiteside Blocks 5 Shots in 7 Minutes for Heat

January 25, 2015 Updated: July 18, 2015

Hassan Whiteside of the Miami Heat recorded an impressive five blocks on seven minutes on Sunday against the Chicago Bulls.

Whiteside started off the sequence by blocking Taj Gibson late in the first quarter as the shot clock winds down.

The center then blocks Gibson again several minutes later with less than a minute left in the quarter.

Just 30 seconds later, Whiteside swats a shot from Aaron Brooks.

Early in the second quarter, Whiteside blocks a shot from Jimmy Butler. Less than a minute later, he blocks Nikola Mirotic.

Whiteside is playing against the Bulls after being questionable due to a sprained right ankle.

Whiteside, 25, is one of the surprises of the middle of this season, because the Heat obtained him from the NBA’s D-League.

The former Marshall University player was selected by the Sacramento Kings in the second round of the 2010 draft, but was cut by multiple teams including the Kings and Los Angeles Clippers.

Whiteside is averaging 7.4 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 2 blocks per game in 17 appearances thus far.
