Alexis Ajinca scored nine points on 3-of-10 shooting with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in the Pelicans’ 115-91 loss to the Raptors on Saturday.
Ajinca hit 3-of-3 free throws and his per-minute upside is better than Omer Asik (seven points, seven boards, two steals), who is mostly just good for rebounds and a lucky defensive stat or two on most nights. Despite Ajinca’s per-minute intrigue, he has a hard time staying on the floor and he’s not a fantasy dynamo or anything like that. If you’re desperate for a big man, they both sit on a pair of four-game weeks coming up.
