Fred VanVleet electrified off the bench in the Raptors’ 108-93 win over the Hawks on Wednesday night with a team-high 19 points, seven rebounds, five assists, three blocks, two steals and four 3-pointers.
Whoa, what a line from FVV. (Let’s try and make this FVV nickname work, it’s easier to say than VanVleet. Try it.) VanVleet was sensational as the Raptors continue to show off how nasty their depth is. A couple weeks ago, it was Delon Wright dropping career numbers. All season, it’s been a different combo of bigs helping them out on a night to night basis. Tonight was FVV’s night. The seven boards and three blocks are both career-highs and the way VanVleet has been playing since 2018 started, something tells me we could see a few more career-highs pop up for him this season.
