Robin Lopez finished Tuesday’s loss to the Mavs with 21 points (10-of-15 from the field), five rebounds and one block.
With Taj Gibson (left ankle) out tonight, the rebounds weren’t what we were expecting. Still, Lopez has been much better lately, posting top 50 value over the last five games with 12.6 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.8 blocks on 48.3% from the field. Nikola Mirotic (illness) was questionable, but did play 22 minutes in the loss and recorded six points, including two treys, five boards, one steal and one block.
Hoiberg said he’d bring Mirotic back in short stints because of conditioning. Mirotic played whole 4th. Fatigue factor in Williams’ blowby?
