Doug McDermott scored 25 points on 8-of-16 shooting (5-of-8 from deep, 4-of-4 from the line) with three rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes off the bench in Thursday’s win over the Nets.
McBuckets has three straight games with more than 20 points and he’s red hot right now, and you can start to build a case for him if he stays hot and continues to get minutes but when Pau Gasol and Jimmy Butler are back up to speed it’s hard seeing him getting the volume he needs to stay valuable. The Bulls’ schedule is very nice but it doesn’t take a lot for McDermott to fall out of the top-250 on a night-by-night basis. If you’re selling out for points, threes and free throw shooting he could be a perfect pickup, however.
