Trevor Ariza returned from his two-game suspension on Monday and scored three points with five rebounds, a 3-pointer and two steals.
Ariza only played 28 minutes and didn’t close the game out, but still gave owners the juicy 3 & D stats they drafted him for. A couple extra triples would have been nice, but the line isn’t as bad as it may seem. He’s averaging 2.8 3s and 1.6 steals and there might be an owner out there that doesn’t value those stats like they should and a game like tonight sets up a strong opportunity to buy-low. It should also be noted that with the Rockets at full strength, Gerald Green picked up a DNP-CD and his magical run seems to be over. Coach D’Antoni will probably try to incorporate him into the rotation, but his 26.7 minutes are going to be dispersed towards the abundance of wings in Houston.
