Rudy Gay scored 20 points on 8-of-15 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, three assists and two steals in 27 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Hornets.
Gay has quietly brought back top-80 value this season in just 23.2 mpg, scoring 12.7 points with 0.8 treys, 5.1 boards, 1.9 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.8 blocks per contests while hitting 47.2 percent from the field and 79.3 percent from the line. That’s what owners hoped for on draft day and to complete the bet he just has to stay healthy. There’s enough need for offense in San Antonio that Kawhi Leonard’s return shouldn’t be too influential on Gay’s numbers.
