Al-Farouq Aminu came up big as the Blazers beat the Heat on Wednesday night, totaling 15 points on five 3-pointers along with 13 rebounds.
Aminu’s offense has almost exclusively become catch-and-shoot so it’s no surprise that all of his points were scored on 3-pointers. It is a big deal though that this is the third time in four games that Aminu has netted five treys. Since returning, Aminu has made 22 shots and 18 of them have been 3-pointers. It’s also a big deal that he brought down 13 boards and grabbed his first double-double since returning from injury. If he’s floating around your waiver wire because he was injured for so long, grab him now.
