• Julius Randle
    F, New Orleans Pelicans

    Julius Randle put up a valiant effort as the Pelicans fell to the Blazers on Friday, posting a well-rounded line of 19 points on 8-of-16 shooting with nine boards, four dimes, one 3-pointer, a steal and two blocks in 37 minutes.

    The cash counters were a welcome bonus from Randle who is averaging just 0.6 steals and 0.5 blocks per game on the season. He's been soaring since joining the starting lineup, so we'll have to watch his positional battle with Nikola Mirotic, who had 13 points, three treys, three boards, two assists and two blocks, closely.
