Pau Gasol went berserk in Saturday’s win over the Rockets, scoring 28 points on 9-of-18 shooting (10-of-14 FTs) with 17 rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks over 38 minutes.
The Bulls are fighting for their playoff lives and Gasol is getting to get all sorts of run. This might be the high point before things settle down a bit, as Jimmy Butler (knee) and Nikola Mirotic (hematoma) are back and ready to take a good amount of touches — but Gasol is going to be an early round stud no matter what going forward. All he has to do is stay healthy.
