Trevor Ariza shot 7-of-16 from the floor on Monday night, posting 20 points, four triples and four rebounds in a whopping 43 minutes as the Rockets dropped their third straight.
Ariza has the green light like most of his teammates and wasn’t shy about jacking up triples tonight. With 12 attempts from beyond, the efficiency isn’t all that bad and the only real complaint is that Ariza didn’t nab a steal or two. He’s locked into this huge workload (though tonight was a bit excessive) and his ability to rack up steals and triples by the handful will keep him firmly in the middle-round conversation. Ariza is consistently a top-75 value and there’s no reason to adjust that forecast going forward.
