Nene scored 16 points on 8-of-15 shooting with six rebuonds, one assist and five steals in the Wizards’ 106-87 win over the Heat on Wednesday.
The Wizards seem like a team that wants to return to their bully-ball ways with Nene logging minutes next to Marcin Gortat (15 & 12, two blocks). But the whole ‘pace and space’ craze has infiltrated the Wiz and they’re a team battling with whether or not it’s a good idea, and tonight’s outcome might encourage the Wizards to try the duo together for more minutes going forward. All of this said, Nene’s upside may not even crack the top-150. 16-team owners throwing caution to the wind can give him a look. Maybe.
