Julius Randle: 21/8/2/0/1 versus lakers


Second time this week I'm awarding BMOtN to a guy on a losing team, which I'm not the biggest fan of. But, nobody put up impressive enough numbers in a win for me to turn my nose up at 30/20/5.

I don't care how impressive Towns' line was: you don't get to be BMOtN when you lose to a Davis-less Pelicans team.

I'm not really fond of setting a precedent for allowing an HM without double-figure rebounds. However, comma, if any performance would rate acknowledgement, fifty-six points with no threes ought to do it.

Going to give it to Collins, since Towns lost at home, and the Hawks had the most impressive win of the night, even sans Embiid.
