Dewayne Dedmon scored 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting (including three treys) with nine rebounds, two steals and four blocks over 29 minutes in Wednesday’s win over the Pacers.
This is the biggest game of Dedmon’s career and it comes on the heels of some stinkers so this probably doesn’t change the calculus on him too much. He’s a top 90-120 (9/8 cat) player on the year in 23.4 mpg and that might improve by a round if he can get to 25 mpg, but we just have to look to his last three games to see the counterargument to that. John Collins added 16 points, seven boards and two blocks in the win and it’s also possible the athleticism of the duo is paying dividends.
