• Nikola Mirotic
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Nikola Mirotic scored 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting (including three treys) with eight rebounds and two blocks over 39 minutes in Tuesday's Game 2 win over the Blazers.

    Mirotic was hobbling around late with a left ankle injury and he has been banged up for a few weeks, so it'll be interesting to see if the Pelicans try to scale him back or give him time off with a 2-0 lead. That said, they'll be an entirely different team without Mirotic on the floor because they lack real depth and they may view a matchup with the Warriors as too lofty a goal — opting to burn through Mirotic for this series win.
