Nikola Mirotic heated up for the Pelicans in a convincing 105-85 thrashing of the Grizzlies on Monday, popping off five triples en route to his 21 points (6-of-15 shooting) in 32 minutes off the bench.
Mirotic also added six rebounds, a perfect 4-for-4 outing at the stripe, one assist, one steal and two blocks to round out his line. This is his best game since returning from an ankle injury which kept him sidelined for over a month. He's trending up and with Anthony Davis out 1-2 weeks, Threekola will be an active participant in the Pelicans' offense.
