Hassan Whiteside scored 19 points on 6-of-10 shooting (7-of-9 FTs) with nine rebounds, one steal and four blocks in Wednesday’s loss to the Celtics.
Whiteside ends the season as the No. 9 and 14 play in 9- and 8-cat leagues, respectively, crushing expectations around the fantasy world. His 65 percent foul shooting on the year was a revelation and he shot 75 percent over the last two months. In other words, he is growing into the player that will justify the max deal he’ll get this summer. Joe Johnson added 19 points with four boards, a steal and a three to finish the season strong, Goran Dragic scored 18 points to finish a mostly disappointing top 70-100 (8/9 cat), and Dwyane Wade added 17 points, three boards and five assists as he finished a round or two ahead of Dragic this year.
