Jahlil Okafor was productive in another start for an injured Anthony Davis (finger) on Wednesday and did not disappoint as he dropped 17 points (8-of-13 shooting), 10 rebounds and six blocks.
The six blocks are a career-best for Okafor and they are also the season-high for any Pelicans player, with AD blocking five shots in six separate occasions to fall short by one. Okafor's defensive presence was big boon for the Pelicans but his 1-of-5 shooting from the line and five turnovers dragged down his impressive performance. He's got short-term must-own appeal while AD is out but will quickly drop like a 10-ton brick upon the Brow's return.
