Weekly Roundup of Zags in the NBA and Overseas

How are the Zags Across the Globe Doing?

Sorry for missing last week’s edition. Thanksgiving food and going to the bars with friends back home was just a little bit more important.

November 16 - November 30

Domantas Sabonis, Indiana Pacers: 15.0 PPG, 10.2 RPG, 3.2 APG through 21 games

On Tuesday, Sabonis had 21 points and 16 rebounds in 23 minutes off the bench as the Pacers beat the Suns, 109-104. Yesterday, Domas scored 20 points to go along with 15 rebounds in 29 minutes in a loss to the Lakers, 104-96. That was his 4th straight double-double and his 10th of the season. You could say I’m very, very happy that I drafted Sabonis on my fantasy basketball team. The Pacers still sit at 4th place in the Eastern Conference with a 13-9 record.

Next Game - Pacers @ Kings on Saturday, December 1 @ 10 PM ET

Zach Collins, Portland Trail Blazers: 8.4 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 1.0 BPG through 21 games

First off, a late happy birthday to the big man who turned the big 2-1 last Monday. Take it easy on the shots, Big Z. Unfortunately, Collins’ scoring production has dropped since the last post. So have the Trail Blazers in the wild Western conference standings, now sitting at the 6th spot with a 12-8 record. Zach played his season low for minutes at 13 against both the Wizards and Knicks.

Next Game - Nuggets @ Trail Blazers on Friday, November 30th @ 10:30 PM ET on ESPN

Kelly Olynyk, Miami Heat: 8.1 PPG, 3.4 RPG through 19 games

Miami is 1-5 in their last 6 games, 7-13 overall. The Heat have now falling three spots behind the 8th playoff spot. Also, Kelly had 0 minutes in a loss to the Nets last Tuesday. Things aren’t looking too good right now in South Beach.

Next Game - Heat @ Pelicans on Friday, November 30th @ 8 PM ET

Johnathan Williams, South Bay Lakers: 18.3 PPG, 8.8 RPG, 1.1 BPG, 1.1 SPG through 9 games

JW3 has started 7 out of the 9 possible games for South Bay. He is ranked 16th in the G-League for rebounds. Williams also had a career-high 4 blocks against the Oklahoma City Blue.

Gary Bell Jr. (Aris BC, Greek HEBA A1): 11.9 PPG, 2.3 RPG through 15 games

Austin Daye (Umana Venezia, Italian Lega Basket Serie A): 14.0 PPG, 6.0 RPG through 15 games

Kyle Wiltjer (Unicaja Malaga, Spanish ACB): 11.8 PPG, 2.7 RPG through 18 games

Congratulations to Kyle as he made the 12-man Canada roster for the World Cup Qualifiers. Love to see it, the hard work he is putting in over in Spain is paying off.

Przemek Karnowski (Twarde Pierniki Torun, Polish TBL): 8.1 PPG, 3.8 RPG through 8 games
