It was another signature Harrell performance, one that saw him post excellent production on a per-minute basis. Harrell's scoring total was second on the night to only that of fellow second-unit denizen Lou Williams, and he's now eclipsed the 20-point mark in consecutive games for the first time this season. The 24-year-old continues to offer strong point and rebounding totals in nearly every outing, leading to scoring averages of 14.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.9 blocks across 23.3 minutes.
Don't look now, but Harrell is carving out space for himself in the Clippers' offense. He has attempted 86% of his field goals from within 4 feet of the rim (94th percentile for big men) and has only been assisted on 79-percent of those attempts (23rd percentile for big men), per Cleaning the Glass. From a playstyle standpoint, Harrell's energy and willingness to grind in the paint fits the supporting cast of scorers that have come together under head coach Doc Rivers. He should be on any fantasy owners radar as he continues to take over what many expected Marcin Gortat's role to be.
Harrell managed 19 points (8-9 FG, 3-5 FT), six rebounds, three blocks, two assists, and one steal in 25 minutes during Thursday's 116-105 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Harrell was excellent in his 23 minutes Thursday, contributing across the stat sheet. He is yet to lock down a consistent role with his playing time fluctuating from anywhere between 13 and 30 minutes. Despite the ever-changing role, his elite per-minute production means he is able to put up some value on a nightly basis, making him an interesting add in standard leagues.
Harrell scored 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 FT) while adding 12 rebounds, three blocks and an assist in 25 minutes off the bench during Friday's 120-95 win over the Magic.
It's his second double-double of the season, as Harrell continues to provide strong production. He's scored in double digits in six of the last seven games, including the 30 he poured in a week ago against the Rockets, and he's been a solid frontcourt complement to Lou Williams on the Clippers' second unit. That role puts a damper on his ceiling, however, and it might take a Tobias Harris injury to land Harrell on the fantasy radar in shallower formats.
NBA fans all around the globe got the revenge game they wanted Friday as Harrell dropped a 30 spot on his former team. The fourth-year center did most of his damage from the free-throw line, where he connected on 14 of 15 attempts. Without DeAndre Jordan around Los Angeles there is a void to be filled at center, especially as Marcin Gortat continues to struggle, and Harrell appears to be poised to make a push for starter-level minutes.
