Josh Richardson played thief yet again in Saturday’s 105-96 win, nabbing two more steals to go with 17 points (7-of-13 shooting), four rebounds, two blocks and a 3-pointer.
Richardson has multiple steals in five straight, racking up 18 in that span. He actually has at least one steal in every game dating back to January 31st and has at least one swipe in all but two games since the calendar flipped to 2018. While his 1.5 steals per game are elite, he’s hit the afterburners lately and has also been a big contributor in the blocks category with 0.9 per contest. That’s an astounding number for a non-big, and when you pair that with his 1.7 threes it’s easy to see why Richardson has vaulted himself into top-60 value this season.
