No it wasn't, Kemba's was higher, obviously.
Batum has missed all but 3 games of this season and it's obviously hurt them more than anything else. They are top in 10 boards and blocks, 6th in opponent FG%, they turn the ball over the least out of any teams in per game. They had a tough roadtrip that was @SAS, @MIN, @NYK, @BOS and then they played the Cavs at home to follow it up..
They just dominated the Clippers with Dwight putting up 16/16 on 7/10 shooting, outplayed DeAndre. He's still a high impact player but it's early in the season with one of their most valuable players injured and them coming off a losing streak with a tough schedule.
3rd game back for Batum and they blew out the Clipps so yeah.
