Nikola Mirotic kept his freefall going on Tuesday night, shooting 3-of-10 from the field en route to eight points, seven rebounds, two triples and a steal in 25 minutes.
The season will end up as a rousing success for Niko no matter what considering how it started, but he’s abandoning fantasy owners at the worst possible time. He’s only a top-150 player over the last two weeks largely because of 37.8 percent shooting. It’s had negative effects on his scoring and threes, and his defensive numbers have also been below their season averages in that time as well. Mirotic should right the ship but is running out of time to do so. There’s not much to do other than hope he can turn it around.
