Zach Collins got the first start of his NBA career on Wednesday night, tallying nine points, three rebounds, one block and one turnover in the Blazers’ win over the Heat.
Collins got 21 minutes and has seen around 20 minutes per game since Jusuf Nurkic‘s ankle injury. Despite the start, he wasn’t the featured big as Ed Davis came off the bench for 26 minutes of action and went for 11 points, five boards and a steal. These two certainly appear to be the guys to watch in Nurkic’s absence.
