Aaron Gordon scores 17 in win over Philadelphia

Aaron Gordon scored 17 points (4-for-7 shooting from the field and 9-for-11 from the free-throw line) in Monday's win over Philadelphia. Gordon added four assists, three rebounds, and a blocked shot in 32 minutes.

Fantasy Impact
Gordon was extremely efficient in this game, scoring 17 points on only seven field goal attempts. However, his rebounding continues to be a disappointment. Before Monday's three rebound effort, Gordon was averaging 5.6 rebounds per game (after the trade of Serge Ibaka), awfully low for a starting power forward. Making things worse, Gordon's starting point guard, Elfrid Payton, grabbed 13 rebounds in this game. Gordon should be embarrassed. If he wants to be a big-time power forward in this league, he's going to need to improve his rebounding.
