Zags in the NBA: Impressive Stats for Clarke and Sabonis

The return of Brandon Clarke

Domantas Sabonis - Indiana Pacers (16.7 PPG, 12 RPG, 3.3 APG in 34 MPG)

Domas continues to stuff the stat sheet as usual. He extended his double-double streak to 13 games after defeating the Lakers on Tuesday. Sabonis has the second-most double-doubles in the league with 23. In addition, he scored a game-high 26 points in the 105-102 defeat of the Lakers while shooting 10-15 from the field.

Brandon Clarke - Memphis Grizzlies (22 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 0.6 APG in 25 MPG)

After scoring 15 points against the Suns in his return after being injured, Clarke sat out the game against the Bucks on Friday for maintenance purposes. However, he made sure that everyone was watching when he returned - he scored 25 points against the Wizards and shot 11-14 from the field. To top that, he scored a career-high 27 points against the Thunder on Wednesday night. That performance made him the 4th rookie in NBA history to post 27+ points and 7+ offensive rebounds off the bench. Seems like his injury healed up nicely.

Rui Hachimura - Washington Wizards (8.5 PPG, 3 RPG, 0 APG in 23 MPG)

In the past week, Rui played in the loss against Memphis going 4-10 from the field. However, in the next game against the Pistons, he was accidentally kicked in the groin by teammate Issac Bonga. They both went up for the same rebound and Bonga accidentally kicked Hachimura resulting in what Washington is officially calling a “groin contusion.” Rui will be out for at least five games as a result.

Kelly Olynyk - Miami Heat (8.5 PPG, 5. RPG, 1.3 APG in 16 MPG)

Kelly has had a rough time lately, but things looked a little brighter during the games against the Lakers and the Mavericks - he scored 15 and 17 points respectively. On the other hand, he failed to score in 18 minutes against Memphis and only posted two points against Philadelphia. There’s definitely a lack of consistency in his gameplay.

Zach Norvell

Last week, Norvell was cut from his two-way contract by the Lakers. On Tuesday, their G League team, the South Bay Lakers, added him to their roster.
