hey, Evan Fournier still plays basketball

We’re going back to basics this season! Every Sunday, you’ll find here everything you need to know about French in the NBA, so you don’t miss anything about Killian Hayes’ development or Rudy Gobert’s new life with his Wolves pack. This Sunday ? Rudy Gobert showed his fangs, Evan Fournier was looking for a buyer, Killian Hayes moved on and ThΓ©o Maledon was demoted.

# RUDY GOBERT

It remains very random, like the season of the Wolves, but this week Rudy showed good things against the Nuggets, in defense with Jokic in particular, and against the Clippers, who have no solutions inside. Obligation now not to take himself for what he is not, it is disappointing to see him take three shots per game but this is probably the only role that will suit him perfectly until the end of his career.

  • Wolves vs Nuggets: 8 points on 3/3 shooting and 2/4 throwing, 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocks in 27 minutes
  • Wolves vs Blazers: 17 points on 6/10 shooting and 5/7 throwing, 12 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals and 3 blocks in 35 minutes
  • Wolves vs Clippers: 25 points on 11/15 shooting and 3/5 throwing, 21 rebounds and 2 blocks in 36 minutes

# EVAN FOURNIER

If the Knicks want to land an interesting counterpart, Vavane needs to show he can still play. It was probably for this purpose and for this purpose alone that the Frenchman was reactivated shortly after Christmas, just to warm up his muscles a little and make the mouths of one or two leaders hungry for fresh meat in outside the bank.

  • Knicks vs Suns: 5 points on 2/6 shooting including 1/4 from the parking lot, 5 rebounds and 1 assist in 14 minutes
  • Knicks vs Spurs: 6 points on 1/5 shooting including 1/4 from the parking lot and 3/4 on throws in 11 minutes
  • Knicks @ Raptors: 4 points on 2/4 shooting including 0/2 from the parking lot, 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal in 12 minutes

# NICOLAS BATUM

Got a poster from Bam Adebayo at the start of the week, but he continues to prove to us when he’s out (injured, back tonight logically) that he’s probably the most important player on Tyronn Lue’s squad. We’re not saying he’s more talented than PG or Kawhi or more tattooed than Morris, we’re just saying the Clippers suck as HAPPY when Nico isn’t playing. That’s it.

  • Clippers vs Heat: 7 points on 3/7 shooting including 1/4 from the parking lot, 5 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal in 23 minutes
  • Clippers @ Nuggets: DNP
  • Clippers @ Wolves: DNP

# FRANK NTILIKINA

He was snoring loudly at the side of the French Prince, struggling with his shoot, with his role. Let’s just hope he has a good camera to capitalize on the exploits of his titular point guard.

  • Mavericks @ Rockets: 0 points on 0/2 from the parking lot, 3 rebounds and 1 assist in 17 minutes
  • Mavericks vs Celtics: 0 points on 0/2 parking in 6 minutes
  • Mavericks vs Pelicans: 0 points on 0/3 parking, 1 rebound and 1 assist in 11 minutes

#KILLIAN HAYES

After his three-game suspension, Killian is back in business with the band’s newfound badass status. On the field? Kiki continues to confirm a match with 13 caviar and zero lost ball against the reigning champion and another complete against the champions… 2014. We feel our way, but it seems that the French leader finally got away already.

  • Pistons @ Blazers: Suspended
  • Pistons @ Warriors: 9 points on 3/12 shooting including 1/4 from the parking lot and 2/2 on throws, 2 rebounds, 13 assists and 1 steal in 35 minutes
  • Pistons @ Spurs: 18 points on 8/14 shooting including 2/5 from the parking lot, 3 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 steals in 36 minutes

# OUSMANE DIENG

Let’s say he didn’t lose any balls and he didn’t miss any shots. More serious? He is obviously still injured and won’t be back in court until February.

  • Thunder vs. Celtics: DNP
  • Thunder @ Magic: DNP
  • Thunder vs. Wizards: DNP

#THEO MALEDON

He pays for the two-way contract system, as Theo has played in the NBA 35 of the 50 games allowed in a season and therefore sent him back to the G League so that the Hornets can keep him a little below the elbow in the end season , when LaMelo Ball will be politely asked to rest to beat Charlotte. He was a hit as soon as he returned to the lower level, logically because he was better than 95% of the players in this championship. Also note that he played his first Swarm match as position 3, incredible scouting cainri again.

  • Hornets vs. Lakers: DNP
  • Hornets vs. Grizzlies: DNP
  • Hornets @ Bucks: DNP

# MOUSSA DIABETES

Off the radar in the NBA and less prominent in the G League, we hope you had a good New Year’s Eve.

  • Clippers @ Nuggets: DNP
