Nikola Mirotic produced 21 points, 10 boards, two triples on 7-of-15 from the field, 2-of-8 from deep and 5-of-5 from the stripe in Tuesday’s 91-100 loss to the Knicks.
Mirotic bounced back from two straight single digit performances to post a big line. Since being benched for three straight games in early March the big man has been outstanding with a career best stretch of production. Over the last two weeks the third-year forward has averaged 19.4 points, 7.1 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.7 boards on 57 percent from the field and 92 percent from the line with just 1.4 turnovers per game. Keep him active.
