Marquese Chriss finished with 20 points, six rebounds, two steals and a blck in a 115-96 loss to the Grizzlies on Monday.
Chriss got his season-high 20 points on 8-of-12 from the field, 2-of-4 from deep and 2-of-4 from the stripe in 34 minutes. The minutes were the most since he played 33 back on January 8 against the Cavs. Most of this production can be explained by the blowout nature of the game, but Chriss has been quietly providing top-115 production over the last two weeks. This is mainly due to him averaging almost a block and two steals a game over his last six games. Players that provide both steals and blocks are a rare commodity in fantasy. The rookie will likely continue to be inconsistent, but he is worth keeping an eye on and adding down the road if he continues to improve
