Tomas Satoransky continues his February run after the All-Star Break

New, comments

Tomas Satoransky is continuing his strong form of play now, even after a well-deserved break. You can watch highlights of his 17 point, 8 assist performance against the Cavaliers in the highlight video above from Down to Buck’s YouTube channel. The Wizards won, 110-103.

Since he was inserted into the starting lineup, the Wizards have gone 8-2. Satoransky’s production hasn’t slowed down a bit since he became the Wizards’ starting point guard.

It’s not surprising to see that Satoransky’s overall production has gone up now that he is playing close to 30 minutes a game. But what I am happy to see is that Satoransky’s usage has gone up along with his shooting efficiency.

The Wizards still have a rough regular season stretch ahead, and John Wall is going to have a find a way to keep this “Everybody Eats” mantra going once he returns. But Satoransky’s play this month has been nothing short of outstanding — if not season-saving. He has found a way to be an efficient scorer and get the ball moving more than it has earlier this season.
