Nikola Mirotic stepped up big time on Wednesday night, leading the Pelicans in scoring with 26 points while adding 10 rebounds and four 3-pointers on 10-of-12 shooting.
Mirotic played 31 minutes and is thriving in New Orleans, much like he did in Chicago. It took a few years for him to put it all together but anyone who stayed on the bandwagon through the dark times has been handsomely rewarded this season. Whether he starts or not is irrelveant, as Niko is going to finish this season as a third-round fantasy value.
