Ivica Zubac shined again in Sunday's 116-102 win over the Suns, dropping 24 points (9-of-16 FG, 6-of-7 FT), 16 rebounds and four blocks in 35 minutes of playing time.
Zubac has been a revelation this year and didn't miss his chance to impress when it came as a result of JaVale McGee's pneumonia last month. McGee was left with just 11 minutes tonight and only five points and three rebounds as Zubac continues to leave him in the dust of late. Tyson Chandler's rest day cleared the runway a bit but it's starting to look like Zubac is the man to own in the Lakers frontcourt. A McGee resurgence isn't out of the question and he's a hold if you can find the space, but the motion of the ocean sure isn't pointing to an immediate reversal of fortune. It's time to consider Zubac worth owning in all formats if you hadn't hit that point already.
