|Khris Middleton: Makes mark despite limited scoring|
Middleton tallied 10 points (4-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt), nine rebounds, seven assists and a steal across 34 minutes Thursday in a 120-109 victory over the Hawks.
The Scoop: Middleton struggled with his shot in the contest and finished with his lowest scoring total since Dec. 30. However, he still found ways to contribute as a passer and a rebounder. The veteran forward's growth as a distributor is evidenced by his career-best 5.5 assists per game this season, and his overall counting stats include a host of other strong marks, including 20.2 points, 6.1 boards and 2.2 three-pointers. Meanwhile, Middleton's 48.1 field-goal percentage and 89.0 percent accuracy from the charity stripe make him among fantasy's most dependable forwards.
