Ryan Wolstat’s look at how the top-performing Canadians are doing lately:
Andrew Wiggins, T’wolves Tristan Thompson, Cavs Cory Joseph, Pacers Jamal Murray, Nuggets Kelly Olynyk, Heat Dillon Brooks, Grizzlies Dwight Powell, Mavs Tyler Ennis, Lakers Trey Lyles, Nuggets Starting to do more than just score the ball. Miss injured big man’s boardwork and defence. Torrid shooting has fallen off but still playing solidly Six threes one game and 32 points, 0-for-7 and 18 the next. Foul trouble limiting his minutes, but playing well. Rookie is now starting and balling for Memphis. Getting a chance lately and producing across the board. Out of mix again, though positives seem to occur when he plays. Denver has too much depth, so Lyles barely gets to play.
