Nikola Mirotic came off the bench but played 35 minutes in Saturday’s 107-118 loss to the Wolves and finished with 18 points, 12 boards, two assists, four steals, one block and three 3-pointers.
You think he’s happy to be out of Chicago? Niko went off in his first game with his new team and this is exactly the kind of performance that had us telling you to hold on to him all season. He should step into the starting unit soon enough and could thrive playing with Anthony Davis. He obviously can’t replace what Boogie brought, but he might be able to help the Pels hang on to their playoff spot.
