Maxi Kleber made a nice impact in 25 minutes on Tuesday, going 6-of-9 from the field and 2-of-4 from deep for 15 points while adding eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and five blocks.
Kleber hadn’t topped double-figures in four straight prior to this mini-outburst, so hopefully deep league owners didn’t jump ship too quickly. He’d been on a tough drought in terms of threes and steals as well and this was a much-needed performance from the German rookie. Kleber should be rostered in leagues of 16 teams or more, as he’s liable to drop lines like this in the middle of his rough patches as long as the minutes are there.
