Gallinari endured a second consecutive sub-30 percent shooting night, but he still found his way to a solid scoring total with near-perfect free-throw shooting and a pair of successful three-point attempts. The 30-year-old also continued his solid work on the boards Monday, and he's now hauled in seven or eight rebounds in half of his six November contests. Despite his current struggles, Gallinari continues to average career bests in scoring (19.0) and rebounds (5.9), while also generating his highest three-point shooting percentage (43.5) since his rookie 2008-09 campaign.
Gallinari drew even with Tobias Harris for the team lead in scoring while also draining multiple threes for the third time in the last four contests. The 30-year-old has been one of the offensive linchpins for the Clippers in the early going alongside Harris and valued sixth man Lou Williams, and his typically fragile health is also encouragingly holding up thus far. Gallinari is averaging career bests in points (20.0), rebounds (5.7), field-goal percentage (44.9) and three-point percentage (45.8), making him one of the best fantasy values in the early portion of the season.
Gallinari poured in 25 points (5-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 11-11 FT), eight rebounds, and one assist in 35 minutes during Thursday's 122-113 loss to the 76ers.
Despite back-to-back losses for the Clippers, Gallinari continues to have himself a very nice season. The scoring is always going to be there for Gallinari but perhaps the biggest takeaway from the first couple of weeks has been his health. He is playing big minutes and appears locked in on both ends of the floor. There is a good chance he fell in many drafts and those that took a risk on the sharpshooting Italian will simply be hoping he can maintain his current clean bill of health.
Gallinari was in vintage form in the loss, with his scoring total easily serving as a team high for the night. It was the veteran wing's fourth time hitting the 20-point mark in the early portion of the season, although Tuesday's scoring haul was a season high. Gallinari is locked in as one of the offense's critical components, essentially guaranteeing an elevated level of usage that he often parlays into strong fantasy production.
Gallinari finished with 20 points (7-19 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, and one block in 32 minutes during Sunday's 115-112 victory over the Rockets.
Gallinari struggled with his shot Sunday but still managed to contribute 20 points to go with nine rebounds in an impressive victory over the highly-fancied Rockets. Perhaps the biggest takeaway from Gallinari's early season form is the fact that he appears fully-healthy for the first time in a Clippers uniform. He fell in a number of drafts due to his well-documented injury history and those owners who snagged him with a late pick have everything crossed that he is able to stay healthy moving forward.
