When players are on minutes restrictions why do teams not stagger the minutes so that the player can finish the game

I’ve never understood this. Why not have Paul George sit two extra minutes in the 2nd quarter so that he’s available to finish the game? The Pelicans did it with Zion all the time last year as well and it drives me nuts. Anyone have any idea why teams do this?
