Al-Farouq Aminu hit 3-of-9 shots and 12-of-13 free throws on his way to 18 points, nine rebounds and two steals.
It's official. Aminu is worth a close look in most leagues, despite his inconsistent scoring, and it's also worth noting he likely benefitted from the absence of Eric Gordon tonight, who was out for rest. Aminu is back in the rotation and averaging 26 minutes, along with 8.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 0.8 blocks over his last five. Just beware that he's scored five or fewer points in three of those, and got most of them from the free throw line tonight.
