Marc Gasol went absolutely nuts against the Raptors on Wednesday, dropping a career-high 42 points, seven boards, two assists, five 3-pointers, one steal and two blocks.
Somehow even this monster line fails to capture his contributions in this one, as he tortured the Raptors with picture perfect defensive rotations and devastating picks. Gasol was also devastatingly efficient, going 14-of-25 from the floor, 9-for-10 and 5-for-10 from downtown. Despite the questions that swirled around Gasol’s health and age during the offseason he’s currently returning second round value on the season and has an excellent shot to be named an All-Star tomorrow night.
