Nikola Mirotic scored 17 points on 6-of-7 shooting (including three treys) with 11 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Saturday’s win over the Wizards.
Mirotic saw 23 minutes off the bench and this is the elusive upside that everybody refers to. Doug McDermott left tonight’s game with his second concussion since the season started and Mirotic’s shooting might be even more of a commodity than it was before tonight. He was already a must-own player, but the arrow could be pointing up here in the short-term.
