Shabazz Napier dropped 32 points, five assists, six boards on 9-of-20 from the field, 4-of-7 from deep and 10-of-11 from the line in Monday’s win over the Spurs.
Napier had the game of his life against the Spurs backups. The guard only saw the minutes and usage because the game was meaningless and the Blazers rested their backcourt. On the season Napier has averaged 3.2 points in 8.8 minutes per game so this is not the norm. Maybe this earns him more minutes next season or looks from other teams in the future. The Blazers could sit out their stars again on Wednesday against the Pelicans so DFS players need to check updates from hoop-ball.
