Lauri Markkanen drops 28 points in win over BostonMarch 18, 2023 | 09:00 PM
Lauri Markkanen led Utah with 28 points (10-for-23 FGs), 10 rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers in a 118-117 win over Boston on Saturday.
Analysis: Per usual, Markkanen led the team in scoring, and he scored 12 of his 28 in the fourth quarter alone. Markkanen has had some games where he struggled since the All-Star break, but he has shined over the past two. After shooting 3-for-22 two games ago, Markkanen has averaged 33 points and five 3-pointers over his last two. Despite some struggles as a team lately, they've won three of their last four and are currently 10th in the West. Markkanen will need to continue to shine if they want to play postseason basketball.
