Mike Conley scored 24 points (8-17 FG, 5-5 FT) with a team-high eight assists, two rebounds, and three three-pointers across 34 minutes in a 116-108 defeat at the hands of the Lakers.
Conley reached the 20-point plateau for the second time in his past three games, in addition to serving up a team-high eight assists in a losing effort tonight. Conley's been more aggressive over his previous three games, raising his scoring average from 14.2 (pre-COVID) to 18.6 points in the bubble. Conley is not a must-start in DFS due to his salary and limited ceiling, but he does have an intriguing matchup against his former team, the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday. Expect Conley to continue being the second scoring option behind Donovan Mitchell with Bojan Bogdanovic out for the rest of the season.
