Hassan Whiteside turned in a defensive gem against the Hornets on Monday, finishing with 13 points, 20 boards, one steal and three blocks.
Charlotte simply didn’t have anyone to body him down low, resulting in Whiteside’s mammoth rebounding night. While he wasn’t utilized much offensively he made his looks count, going 5-for-9 from the floor and 3-for-3 from the line. Whiteside’s actually been shooting over 78% from the foul line over the last month, allowing him to return first round value during that time frame. After starting the season slowly, he looks poised for a monster finish over the final week of the season.
