Happy Monday and Happy 2022!

Evan Mobley: Pretty good on offense since coming back from being in the health & safety protocols!
Evan Mobley on the year, 29 games: 14.7 points per game, 2.6 assists per game, 50.1% shooting, 31.3% from three on 1.7 attempts— Chris Manning (@cwmwrites) January 3, 2022
Evan Mobley since coming out of COVID protocols, 4 games: 20.8 points per game, 3 assists per game, 63.3% shooting, 16.7% from three on 1.5 attempts
Mobley being aggressive in looking for his shot since coming back — which notably has overlapped with Darius Garland being in COVID protocols and Ricky Rubio getting hurt — feels like a big deal. At the very least, it is worth monitoring if this sustains as Garland comes back and the team integrates Rajon Rondo as something of a Rubio replacement.
