Nicolas Batum played 35 minutes and scored 13 points with eight assists in Saturday’s 121-109 loss to the Cavs.
Batum was 5-of-11 from the field while also chipping in six rebounds and a couple of blocks. Saturday was the fifth time in his last six games that Batum recorded eight or more assists, as the 28-year-old continues to be an above average fantasy asset in the passing department. Batum’s shooting percentage is hovering around the 40 percent marker this season, but with the well balanced contributions in points, steals, rebounds and assists, Batum’s value will remain steady if he can avoid the injury bug.
