Caris LeVert continued his nice run on Friday night, shooting 7-of-9 from the field to finish with 17 points, six rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes of action.
There are rumors swirling that LeVert will eventually replace Allen Crabbe in the starting five, and his play over the last two weeks certainly makes a compelling case. In that time he’s delivered easy middle-round value with averages of 12.7 points, 1.6 threes, 3.1 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.1 steals on 46.9 percent shooting. LeVert is still more of a late-round guy in the bigger picture but clearly he can surpass expectations with minutes in the high twenties. He should be owned across the board and started while he’s running hot.
