C - LAC
Ivica Zubac posted five points (2-8 FG, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, one assist, and one steal in Friday's 111-105 loss to the Nuggets.
Zubac has only logged double-digit rebounds twice so far in 11 playoff games. He's seen an uptick in minutes and has been an integral part of the Clippers' playoff run. His scoring leaves a bit to be desired but his rebounding floor makes him a solid value in DFS lineups.
Ivica Zubac scored 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-4 FT) along with nine rebounds, and one turnover across 20 minutes in a 110-101 loss to Denver on Saturday night.
Zubac collected four offensive rebounds (9 in total) but was torched on defense by Nikola Jokic, who doubled Zubac's output on the glass with 18 rebounds along with 26 points. Zubac drastically improved from his four-point performance on Thursday. Still, he'll need to assert himself more defensively if the Clippers are going to slow down the Nuggets and Nikola Jokic.
Ivica Zubac scored 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-3 FT) and 11 rebounds in Sunday's 111-97 win over the Mavericks.
Zubac hit 15 points three times in this series, which appears to be his ceiling lately. He averaged seven rebounds per game over this six-game series and should assume the start in Round Two, where he's a solid DFS value.
Ivica Zubac scored 10 points (5-9 FG) with 10 rebounds, two blocks, and one assist over 22 minutes in the Clippers 118-110 playoff win over the Mavericks on Monday.
This was a super efficient game for Zubac, who only played 22 minutes but was able to secure his fourth double-double since the restart. Montrezl Harrell, who was making his bubble-debut and was shaking the rust off, logged 15 minutes. The Clips still need Zubac as a rim protector but their backcourt just got a lot more crowded with Harrell's return. He may not be of much use going forward in playoff DFS tournaments but it was a fun ride while it lasted.
Ivica Zubac recorded 15 efficient points (7-9 FG, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, and two assists in Wednesday's 124-111 win over the Nuggets.
Zubac has been a rebounding machine, averaging 13.2 boards over his last five outings to go along with 14.2 points. Given his season averages of 8.3 points and 7.6 rebounds it's tough to imagine this production continues but Zubac has been seeing extra minutes in these important games.
