This week, we had some pretty big performances. Some of them were from guys you would expect, but others came from guys that you would usually go “eh…”. But anyway, here are your Frequent Flyers for this week.
First, we have Celtics forward Jae Crowder. Crowder, a product of Marquette, is showing the NBA that he is a potential future all-star that can play on both sides of the ball at a high level. He won’t wow you with his scoring, although he is averaging just over 18 early on in January, but his steal number are quite impressive as he averaged just around 3 per game this week.
Second is Lakers guard Lou Williams. As the Lakers sixth man, Williams is expected to come off the bench and put up points. Well, he did just that this week. This week, he put up 30, 10, 20, and 44 points respectively. Forget the 10 point game, the 44-point game got him on this list! Congrats Lou!
Our third Frequent Flyer is Kings center DeMarcus Cousins. Yes, I know he is a member of the No Fly Zone, but he redeemed himself with a great week. This week, he had 4 straight double-doubles, including three 30-point games! He is further proving that he is the future of the Kings. His big performance was a 33-point, 19-rebound performance in a win at OKC.
Our last member this week is Warriors forward Draymond Green. Usually the forgotten guy behind the Splash Brothers, Green has been on a tear lately. He had TWO triple-doubles this week, in which the Dubs did not lose (shocker). I think he is the MVP of that team right now because he does so much to make them go.
Great week for the Frequent Flyers! Enjoy your flight with us!
