Johnathan Motley dropped 26 points (one 3), 12 boards, two assists and two steals in Friday’s road loss to the Pistons.
And this is why we call it the Silly Season. After playing in merely seven games the whole season, Motley started the last two and got over 40 minutes in each with averages of 20.0 points, 10.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals. It’s such a small sample size that we’re hard pressed to say it will definitely continue, but 40 minutes a game is ample enough opportunity for deep leaguers or intrepid DFS players to give him a shot. Dorian Finney-Smith also double-doubled, getting 15 points (three 3s), 10 rebounds, four assists and a block and has also gotten heavy minutes the last two games.
