Can Terrence Jones continue to play this well?
While many candidates are in the running for the NBA's Most Improved Player award, from Miles Plumlee in Phoenix to Jeremy Lamb in Oklahoma City, none have been a bigger breakout fantasy performer this season than Jones.
In the five games before Monday's win over Portland, which Jones missed because of a thigh injury, the second-year power forward out of Kentucky averaged 21.6 points, 12.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 3.0 blocks and 1.2 steals per game. Those are truly stunning numbers from a player who began the season much like he ended his rookie campaign: on the bench.
