Over the past three contests against Milwaukee Bucks, Sacramento Kings and Detroit Pistons, Chandler has averaged an astounding 20 rebounds, matching a streak that was last accomplished by Hall of Famer Willis Reed – a Knicks legend – back in December of 1969. In that same span, however, Chandler has only managed to score 9.3 points – more than two points below his average of 11.8. How dare he!
With his ability to finish baskets, a 20-20 game should certainly be attainable for the center if he chose to fish for such stats. With so many capable scorers on the team, though, there isn’t necessarily a need for Chandler to try to think outside the box.
9.3 points and 20 rebounds will do just fine.
