Josh Richardson swiped three steals on Tuesday night, adding 16 points and three triples in 35 minutes against the Wizards.
A combination of foul trouble and game score limited Richardson to just 19 minutes on Monday against Phoenix, and his zero-steal performance in that one snapped a streak of 14 straight games with a swipe. Needless to say, J-Rich is a fantastic source of defensive stats from the backcourt and is looking to finish inside the top-50 for the first time in his young career. His starting backcourt mate, Goran Dragic, fouled out after racking up 16 points, seven rebounds, five assists, a three and a steal in 36 minutes. Both are solidly middle-round assets with room for more, as evidenced by Richardson’s breakout.
