Jeremy Pargo scored a career-high 28 points in his start at point guard for injured Kyrie Irving (finger) on Wednesday, hitting 11-of-19 shots (including four threes) with five rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 39 minutes.
Our deepest apologies for calling him a fantasy non-factor earlier in the day, but if you read some of the other work on the site and on Twitter perhaps you knew he had a shot at a big night going in. Bryon Scott likes him for his defense and he was able to show his offensive ability tonight, keeping former backup Donald Sloan on the bench all night. Daniel Gibson (elbow) didn't play tonight and his return will definitely hinder Pargo, but on a shallow team there could be plenty of minutes to go around. Owners shouldn't expect this every night, but Pargo is a must-own player in most formats after this result.
