Darko Milicic Puts Up Career-Best Performance

Minnesota Timberwolves center Darko Milicic put up the best line of his career tonight. Milicic put up an unlikely 23 points, 16 rebounds, 6 blocks, 5 assists, and 2 steals.

The Breakdown
Where has THIS Darko been all these years? Milicic had only been averaging 6.1 points and 5.5 rebounds on a poor 33.3% shooting for the year. The 6 blocks are a career-high, but not surprising considering Milicic is now averaging nearly 3 blocks a game.

Darko is currently ranked #78 in FBB's player ratings, almost completely due to his shot blocking. Additionally, he's now moved into the top five shot blockers in the NBA this season. Milicic is worth adding in all leagues because he's been seeing increased playing time in recent games. Even if he fails to follow up on his recent success, he'll lend a hand to your block totals, which can be a hard category to fill.
