Marc Gasol tends to couple together single digit scoring performances

Big Spain's statistical history doesn't bode well for fantasy players tonight.

Marc Gasol had an abysmal game last night. He could shoot, from anywhere, and he had a tough time just holding on to the ball for much of the game. We know Marc Gasol will eventually play at a very high level again, but a dig through his last two seasons says that you shouldn't necessarily bank on that being tonight.

  • In the past two seasons, 2012-13 & 2013-14, Marc Gasol has scored single digits in 27 games.
  • Of those 27 performances, 16 of them have been coupled together in consecutive games.
  • Based on those recent stats, Gasol is likely to have another offensive stinker tonight.
  • Even when he doesn't pair up the single digit scoring nights, he's only averaging 11.3 points on the games when he does break back into double digits.
  • In other words, Gasol can get into sustained funks and then also ride high on long-cresting waves.

There's a good chance he'll be back in form on Tuesday at home against the Lakers, but for tonight you probably want to consider someone else in your FanDuel lineup.
