|Wendell Carter: Big production against Rockets|
Carter scored 18 points (8-14 FG, 2-2 FT) to go along with 13 rebounds, one assist, two steals and three blocks across 29 minutes in Monday's 120-100 win over the Rockets.
The Scoop: Carter had one his best games of the season, notching his fifth double-double. He was particularly aggressive in finding his shot, as he reached double-digit field-goal attempts for only the fifth time this season. In addition, Carter supplemented his strong scoring and rebounding totals with defensive contributions by matching a season-high three blocks. Since returning from a quadriceps injury, Carter has averaged 13.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.4 blocks and 0.6 steals across five games.
