Zach LaVine scored 24 points on 9-of-18 shooting from the field on Saturday, while enjoying a season-high 45 minutes of playing time.
For the third straight game LaVine played more than 40 minutes, and for the third straight game LaVine scored more than 20 points. The third year guard continues to enjoy a true breakout season, as LaVine has entrenched himself as the second most valuable fantasy asset from the Wolves roster, ahead of mid round pick Andrew Wiggins. Even with a significant increase in minutes and shot attempts this season, LaVine’s field goal percentage has also risen to a career-high 47 percent. LaVine has now squeaked into the top-50. Time to start believing.
