Luol Deng continues his hot streak with an impressive double-double against the undermanned Los Angeles Clippers. He scored 13 points, pulled down 12 rebounds, handed out two assists, and got two steals and two blocks.
Deng’s fantasy stock has been trending up in recent games, with the veteran providing some solid across-the-board production. He’s scored in double figures in five straight games, and eight of his last 10. He’s chipping in threes, steals and the occasional blocked shot. Coach Walton has been leaning on him a lot lately, with Luol playing 30 minutes or more in his last six games. He’s injury prone, but it makes sense to ride his recent run until his legs give out.
