FT regression incoming? So strange this season with all these former %-killers. 

 

Meanwhile John Wall and Russell Westbrook have turned their owners' teams into punt FG% builds :lol:

 

Man this guy has been amazing so far. 10 boards and 3 blocks in the first quarter...I don't even need him to do anything else for tonight.

Has he ever had a stretch like this before?  Without too much research, I can see he's only once averaged as much for a season as he has since Vucevic went down, and that was when he was 20.  But I wonder if something might've clicked with him to the extent that he's both deserving and could produce in like 20 minutes when Vooch comes back.

No chance he'll get 20 minutes with Vuc back. He won't even eclipse 15 minutes. Just gotta enjoy this ride while it last.

Yes, he has. Quoting my post from December...

 

Last time Biyombo had extended run as a starter in December 2015-16 with the Raptors (filling in for an injured Valanciunas), he put up a month's worth of the following numbers:

 

7.1 PPG, 11.3 RPG, 1.7 BPG on 50.7 FG% and 64.9 FT% in 28.3 mpg.

 

That's what I'm expecting from him until Vucevic gets back in 6-8 weeks. That's definitely roster worthy.

 

Once Valanciunas came back during that last stretch, Biyombo went back to being useless. So yeah, I don't expect anything from him once Vucevic returns.

Bismack Biyombo dominated the Wolves with 10 points, 16 rebounds (six offensive), two assists, one steal and five blocks in a 108-102 win on Tuesday.

That's his 17th career game with five or more blocks and his second of the season (he also had five blocks on Dec. 26). Biyombo has been dominant over his last three games with 15.0 points, 12.6 rebounds and 2.3 blocks, and while he'll continue to eat while Nikola Vucevic (hand) is out, the Magic will have a tough decision on their hands around the trade deadline -- Vucevic is on the books for $12.7 million next season and could be a trade candidate with Orlando looking at another lost season.
 
TRADE HIM :ph34r:
