Gasol Beats His Own Assists Record

On March 4, 2016, in Sporting News, by Buddy TB

Pau GasolGasol contributed with 22 points, 16 rebounds and 14 assists in his best game of the season. Despite the efforts from the Spanish player the Chicago Bulls lose at home to Portland Trail Blazers 103-95.

The Bulls have little choice and so far this season has not been kind to the squad. They are currently a team full of injuries to crucial players and the starting lineup in itself is a. quintet of circumstances. From this loss comes a full beat for Pau Gasol, in that game he signed his best game of the season with a triple-double.

Six of Gasol’s triple-doubles games were during his time as a Laker and two while with the Memphis Grizzlies. Pau scored his first triple-double of the course, matching his brother Marc, and counting up the eighth of his career. And he did it while beating his own record for assists in the NBA with 14, a sensational figure for a power forward. Incredible numbers despite the outcome.

Pau finished the game with 22 points, 16 rebounds and 14 assists, a triple-double from a challenging game is more than enough. In addition, 3 blocked shots and 9 out of 16 throws, the very best of the season surpassing the 44 he made against Detroit on Jan. 18 with 31 points and 12 rebounds. We witnessed an excellent performance from the Catalan that night only to end up without the victory.

He was not the only Bull trying hard but only found an effective offensive in the hands of E’Twaun Moore and Doug McDermott, besides the great work on rebounds from the rookie Bobby Portis. It makes me wonder if the situation will change for the squad or Gasol will change squads.

Portland won in Chicago to mark his 16th win in 20 games. They are officially on a roll. And that despite having that horrible night with C.J. McCollum with 1 out of 12 on throws. Damian Lillard clearly was the star with 31 points.
