Hassan Whiteside’s strong start continued in Friday’s loss to the Raptors, scoring 21 points on 10-of-18 shooting with 16 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 38 minutes.
Whiteside’s numbers aren’t quite where first round drafters want them to be but the minutes, role and overall production are just fine. He’s hitting just 50 percent of his free throws and the 2.6 blocks per game are down, but we’re only talking about a five-game sample here. Goran Dragic scored 17 points with five rebounds, five assists, one steal and three treys in the loss.
