F - LAL
Montrezl Harrell nabbed 16 points (8-10 FG, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal in a 112-95 win over New Orleans.
Harrell was a virtual no-show through the first three quarters of Friday night's contest. 10 of his 16 points came in the final period and he had only seen the court for 11 minutes prior to the fourth quarter. Much of Harrell's success this season has been defined by mop-up duty and the bench stud capitalized on Friday. The presence of Marc Gasol will seemingly cap Harrell's fantasy potential as coach Frank Vogel has opted for experience over athleticism in the starting lineup, but Montrezl continues to produce despite his limited exposure.
Montrezl Harrell produced 21 points (8-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-8 FT), six rebounds and one block in 25 minutes on Wednesday night.
Harrell showed out on Wednesday with one of his finest performances of the season. Despite residing behind Marc Gasol on the depth chart, Harrell has routinely out-performed the veteran big man resulting in more minutes. Harrell continues to be the most valuable asset on the Lakers bench and he continues give fantasy managers a safe floor of production. Last season's sixth man of the year recipient continues to be a formidable option in all formats.
Montrezl Harrell racked up 14 points (4-8 FG, 6-8 FT), four rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 27 minutes of work versus Houston.
Harrell has been mostly boom or bust this season with his more robust production coming during garbage time or in relief of Marc Gasol. However, despite not being as productive as he was with the Clippers, Harrell could settle in nicely with the Lakers as the season progresses, especially when his superstar running mates have days off. He's averaged 12.9 points, eight rebounds and one assist this season. Tuesday wasn't his finest outing, but Harrell's best days are likely yet to come.
