Nicolas Batum had a quiet night only attempting five shots on Monday for seven points against the Bulls but he contributed in other ways with 12 boards, seven assists, two steals and a block.
Batum has always struggled with being a selfish player on offense but on nights like tonight, owners are okay with his interest in deferring. Playing alongside Jeremy Lamb and Marvin Williams should help Batum with his assists this season as both players are much more capable offensively than Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Lamb and Williams combined to shoot 10-of-19 from the feild tonight, leaving Batum as the only starter who failed to reach 50 percent.
