Nicolas Batum stepping up lately
Nicolas Batum filled the stat sheet against the Pacers during an 88-82 win on Thursday with 13 points, five rebounds, five assists, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.
It's probably safe to say he's over his knee injury and this was his third game in a row with at least five assists. Batum's shot is way off on the season and he's only made 33.3 percent from the field in his last five due mainly to his woeful 3-point shooting, but he is a career 37 percent shooter from deep. He'll get it turned around soon.
