December 21 - December 28
Domantas Sabonis, Indiana Pacers: 14.3 PPG, 9.6 RPG, 2.9 APG through 33 games
Domas continues his streak of scoring in double figures to ten straight games. The Pacers are 18-9 when Sabonis scores 10+ points and 10-4 when he has a double-double.
Next Game - Pistons @ Pacers on Friday, December 28th @ 7:00 PM ET
Zach Collins, Portland Trail Blazers: 7.4 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 0.9 BPG through 35 games
I saw Collins’ matchup with Draymond Green last night at Oracle Arena. He usually plays very well against one of the best defenders in the NBA but Zach only came up with 1 point on 0-6 shooting. Maybe he will do better in the second game of a rare back-to-back against the same team.
Next Game - Warriors @ Trail Blazers on Saturday, December 29th @ 10:00 PM ET
Kelly Olynyk, Miami Heat: 9.7 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 2.0 APG through 32 games
Olynyk had two solid outings in a row against Orlando and Milwaukee while scoring 11 points in each of those wins. The Heat are 10-7 when Kelly scores 10+ points.
Next Game - Cavaliers @ Heat on Friday, December 28th @ 8:00 PM ET
Johnathan Williams, Los Angeles Lakers: 3.8 PPG, 3.5 RPG through 6 games
Welcome back to the big time, JW3! Williams got called up against Kings due to LeBron and McGee being inactive. Johnathan didn’t log any minutes but with LeBron being out for several games (groin) and McGee missing his sixth straight game (illness), Williams will have a chance to show what he has been working on in the G-League.
Next Game - Clippers @ Lakers on Friday, December 28th @ 10:30 PM ET on NBATV
