Enes Kanter was productive in his 25 minutes off the bench on Saturday, scoring 23 points and grabbing eight boards.
Kanter has been hot lately, and the ride continued in Saturday’s 114-88 win over the Clippers. Kanter got to the free throw line 12 times, connecting on 11 of his attempts, while finishing 6-of-13 from the field and chipping in a block and a steal. Over his last six games, Kanter has averaged 19.2 points per game and shot at least 50 percent from the field in six of his last seven. Kanter is a gifted offensive player, and so long as he’s seeing an uptick in minutes, he should be a fairly reliable fantasy asset. Saturday was the sixth straight game Kanter received 23 or more minutes of playing time.
