Nicolas Claxton posted 15 points and four rebounds in just 18 minutes on Monday.
Credit to Claxton for besting his two-day-old career high in points in just 18 minutes today. The Nets' rookie has an intriguing statistical profile and documented per-minute upside, but the team doesn't yet trust him with a full workload in either frontcourt position. He's also one of the thinnest "big" men in the league, so expect muscle watch season to feature Claxton this offseason. He's a player to add in 16-team leagues whenever the guys ahead of him get hurt, much like the wiry Chris Boucher up in Toronto.
