Zach LaVine scored a career-high 40 points on 13-of-21 shooting with a career-high tying seven treys, six boards, two assists and one steal in the Wolves’ 109-105 loss to the Kings on Friday.
LaVine hit all seven of his free throws and he has emerged as the second best fantasy asset on the squad. When facing one of the league’s best perimeter defenders in Garrett Temple, he simply got what he wanted until the end when Temple forced him into some misses. He’s Westbrook-lite with more of shooting guard’s game than a point guard.
