LaVine totaled 21 points (8-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, two rebounds, one steal, and one block in 27 minutes during the Timberwolves' 129-105 loss to the Rockets on Monday. LaVine has scored in double figures during five straight games despite seeing less than 30 minutes in each of the last three. He has made a triple in 24 consecutive contests, and LaVine has improved a great deal over the course of his sophomore campaign. The Timberwolves close the season against the injury-depleted Pelicans, who have been giving up more than their fair share of points for the better part of the year.
LaVine supplied 18 points (6-10 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) two assists, a rebound and three steals over 26 minutes in Thursday's 105-97 victory over the Kings. Although he supplied little else besides scoring, LaVine managed his third straight double-digit scoring effort, and second consecutive game with an increase in scoring total. He also shot 57 percent from three-point range for a second straight contest, and impressively generated his stat line in well under 30 minutes. The most encouraging aspect of his performance Thursday was likely his success rate from the field, as LaVine had shot between 11 and 43 percent in the three prior games.
LaVine tallied 16 points (6-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt), five assists, four rebounds, and four steals across 40 minutes in Tuesday's 124-117 overtime victory over the Warriors. The Wolves continue to feed LaVine big minutes as the starting shooting guard while the team has phased out Tayshaun Prince, but the second-year player had been struggling prior to getting back on track Tuesday. In his preceding five games, LaVine had been held to single digits in the scoring column three times, including a zero-point effort against the Clippers on March 30. He averaged just 7.6 points (on 29.8% shooting), 2.8 assists, 1.6 rebounds, and one trey during that stretch. While Tuesday's well-rounded stat line is encouraging, LaVine probably needs to show more consistency before he can become a trustworthy option in DFS cash games.

LaVine collected 28 points (11-19 FG, 6-10 3Pt), three rebounds, and one assist in 41 minutes during the Timberwolves' 114-108 win over the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
