D.J. Augustin got red hot against the Lakers on Wednesday, scoring a season-high 26 points on 7-of-11 shooting (3-of-3 3PTs, 9-of-9 FTs) with two rebounds, five assists and one steal in 23 minutes.
The Lakers give up huge lines all the time but it’s time to give Augustin a real look, as he’s averaging 23.2 mpg, 13.0 points, 1.9 threes, 3.7 assists and 48.3 percent shooting from the field and 87.0 percent from the line. He is going to take a hit in the field goal shooting department, but the current numbers are good for late-round value and if he becomes a 26 mpg guy then he’ll probably hold it down.
