Nikola Mirotic slowed from his torrid pace with 15 points, three triples and five rebounds in 25 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.
The important thing here is that Mirotic’s minutes remained at a pretty good level in a bench role. That’s usually the stumbling block with him and it looks like there will be enough opportunities for him to keep up middle-round production. Mirotic wasn’t going to deliver top-20 numbers forever but his fantasy owners can feel good about surefire top-90 returns unless something completely goes off the rails here.
