Can Someone Find Zach Collins Some Good Relaxation Techniques?

December 28 - January 11

Domantas Sabonis, Indiana Pacers: 15.0 PPG, 9.6 RPG, 3.0 APG through 39 games

December 7th against the Kings was the last time Sabonis didn’t score in double figures. Also, Domas just started his 3rd game of the year against the Cavaliers. As a starter, he averages 16.7 PPG and 12.0 RPG. That’s nice and all but lets keep him in that sixth man role so he can win the award at the end of the season.

Next Game - Pacers @ Knicks on Friday, January 11th @ 7:30 PM ET on ESPN

Zach Collins, Portland Trail Blazers: 7.3 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 0.8 BPG through 42 games

The big man was trending on Twitter after his teammate, CJ McCollum, used meditation to calm him down after he fouled out. Collins, relax and find your zen. Pretty funny stuff.

Next Game - Hornets @ Trail Blazers on Friday, January 11th @ 10:00 PM ET

Kelly Olynyk, Miami Heat: 9.4 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 1.9 APG through 39 games

Olynyk was also sort of trending on Twitter due to his reaction to Tyler Johnson’s tongue injury. Gonzaga basketball players are just a funny bunch of dudes, aren’t they?

Next Game - Grizzlies @ Heat on Saturday, January 12th @ 5:00 PM ET

Johnathan Williams, South Bay Lakers: 15.9 PPG, 8.5 RPG, 1.2 BPG through 21 games

After being called up for one game and seeing no time on the court, JW3 was sent right back down to the South Bay Lakers. At least he can get buckets in the G-League.

Kyle Wiltjer (Unicaja Malaga, Spanish ACB): 11.6 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 1.2 APG through 27 games

Silas Melson (GS Lavrio, Greek HEBA A1): 8.0 PPG, 1.7 RPG through 14 games

Gary Bell Jr. (Aris BC, Greek HEBA A1): 11.5 PPG, 2.0 RPG, 1.6 APG through 20 games
