John Collins scored 21 points on 8-of-11 shooting (3-of-3 from deep) with 14 rebounds, two assists and one steal in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors.
Collins has been in the headlines because, heck, look at this line it's great on the surface. But the low defensive stats have dogged him all year as he's averaging just 0.7 combined steals and blocks, while 18.4 points and 10.4 boards on 58.3 percent shooting are keeping him afloat. It's a weird buy low period for folks looking at his late-mid round value and not buying a bounceback in the defensive stat categories.
