Derrick White drops dazzling line in start as Spurs defeat Dallas
San Antonio Spurs point guard Derrick White scored 14 points (5-of-11 field goals, 3-of-4 free throws) with 7 rebounds, 9 assists, 2 steals, 4 blocks, 1 3-pointer, and 3 turnovers in 35.4 minutes of a 119-109 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday.
White drew the start in place of Dejounte Murray (calf) and proceeded to match his career-high in assists. He also reached his season-best in steals for the fourth time. Murray is out indefinitely, so White should continue to shine. The Spurs' next outing is at home on Friday against the Denver Nuggets.
White scored a season-high 50.9 FanDuel points on Tuesday. numberFire's models project him for 12.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 0.7 steals, and 2.1 triples per game over the rest of the season.
