Thomas Bryant got hit with two fouls in the first three minutes of Friday's game against the Heat, and finished with 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting and five rebounds in 23 minutes.
Bryant got hit with some ticky-tack fouls and when he returned he was solid and aggressive, showing deft touch and shot-making ability for a big. He missed a point blank shot later in the fourth quarter that tempted Scott Brooks to go with Jeff Green down the stretch and the Wiz down big, which might not be a one-time thing. Bryant has to polish up his game he's just 23 years old with 43 NBA games under his belt, but the Wizards need him, he's answering the call and he's trending toward mid-round value as a must-own player.
