Oliver finished Friday's loss to the Skyforce with 28 points (11-14 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks.
Friday's line was one of the more productive ones of the season for the big man, as Oliver has routinely thrown together double-doubles, but not with this type of explosive scoring. A 77.4 percent free throw percentage might be one of the best areas of improvement for Oliver in his second G League season, and despite his height (6-8), the 23-year-old makes for an intriguing fantasy play at the center position.
Oliver scored 15 points (6-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and registered 14 rebounds along with nine assists and a block across 33 minutes Saturday against Greensboro.
Oliver came within one assist of a triple-double, piecing together a stellar final line in a 108-86 victory over the Swarm. The 6-8 forward has been one of his team's top contributors this season, averaging 16.3 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists over 19 contests.
Oliver tallied 22 points (9-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals, one assist and one blocked shot in the win Monday over the Blue.
Oliver was arguably the team's most efficient player Monday, posting a double-double while nearly leading the team in scoring. Oliver is shooting a putrid 28.2 percent from long distance, but that number will likely rise closer to his career average (34.6 percent) as the season progresses.
