Al-Farouq Aminu had a rough time against Charlotte in Saturday’s win, shooting just 1-for-7 to finish with two points, three rebounds and two blocks in 23 minutes while picking up five fouls.
Aminu had a hard time playing clean defense in this one and his whole line suffered as a result. It allowed for Ed Davis and Zach Collins to get extra run off the pine, with Davis corralling nine rebounds in 22 minutes and Collins collecting 10 boards and a triple in just 15 minutes. To be fair, The Chief also had a game-changing block in the final minutes that more or less saved the day. Don’t worry too much about Aminu even though his 3-point output is due for some nasty regression. He’s a solid top-120 guy and should be treated as such despite this blip.
