Ivica Zubac had his third straight excellent performance on Tuesday, going 9-of-10 from the field for 18 points along with 11 rebounds and two blocks in 31 minutes against the Warriors.
Players of Zubac's ilk usually get played off the floor against Golden State, but the stars are all aligning for him right now and the Dubs couldn't get it going to the point where L.A. was forced to go small. The floor here remains very shaky since JaVale McGee isn't in the picture at the moment but the return of Tyson Chandler didn't hurt Zubes one bit. Some skepticism is needed but you can view Zubac as a viable pickup in just about all formats after this recent run.
