Ersan Ilyasova led the Hawks to a 117-110 win over the Magic on Saturday with 26 points on an immaculate 9-of-9 shooting line that included five triples.
Ilyasova missed two of his five freebies to prevent a truly perfect night, but we’ll round up. He wasn’t as diverse with his production as usual in churning out just three rebounds and four assists but nobody should be complaining about 26 points in 28 minutes. Ilyasova was just outside the top-150 entering tonight but that’s sure to change after this impressive showing, and he needed a big night like this one to assert himself with Atlanta’s regular frontcourt guys creeping back towards full health. Pick him up if you’ve got dead weight at the end of your roster and see what happens over the next week or so.
