Josh Richardson‘s stat-stuffing potential was on full display in Friday’s win with a tremendous line of 24 points, 11-of-14 shooting, two threes, four rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in 36 minutes.
Richardson has been a second round producer over the last two weeks and is on some kind of heater right now. Over his last five games he’s shooting .577 from the floor while averaging 21.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.6 blocks and 2.6 triples per game. He’s getting all kinds of run with Miami short on healthy players and is delivering in spades for the Heat and fantasy owners alike. Richardson is shaping up as a nice sell high candidate since things will get a bit more cramped down the line and his shooting won’t stay in this range forever, but you’re more than welcome to ride the wave for a little while longer before testing the market.
