Al-Farouq Aminu had a full effort in Monday’s 109-110 loss to the Wolves, finishing with 20 points (7-for-14 from the field, 2-for-2 from the line), seven boards, five assists, three blocks and four triples in 34 minutes.
It’s always nice when Aminu’s efficiency isn’t hurting you, and this is the multi-cat potential that he can bring when he’s hitting. He had a tip-in off a missed free-throw to keep the game within reach, but it was ultimately not enough for an undersized and undermanned Blazers squad. Aminu’s looking at a heavy minutes load with Jusuf Nurkic (leg) out and should be rolling until the end of the season. Tonight was his highest minutes total since the beginning of March.
