Marreese Speights leads second unit in scoring Tuesday night
Marreese Speights tied a team-high with 17 points on 6-for-11 shooting including 4-for-8 from beyond the arc in Tuesday night's 114-107 loss to the Rockets. Speights added five rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal to his stat line over 21 minutes of action.
This was arguably Speights' best game of January, getting extended time in the absence of both Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic. When he sees extended minutes he is a double-double threat. He's logged 20+ minutes in three games in January scoring in double-figures in each game and recording one double-double. That being said he is solely a DFS play when he has the opportunity for more minutes and doesn't need consideration in season long formats.
