Play the subs

Hypothetical situation: I am a basketball coach. I have 12-13 players who practice hard every day. Eight or nine are obviously better than the others, therefore they get to play the most.

We are beating a team by 30 points with three minutes to play. Now’s my chance to let these bottom five play more than 30 seconds. Did I substitute? No. Why not? Sound familiar?
