Magic's Ignas Brazdeikis: Leads team in minutes played

Brazdeikis contributed 20 points (8-16 FG, 2-6 3PT, 2-4 FT), six rebounds and two assists in Tuesday's 120-115 win over Cleveland. With Franz Wagner reaggravating his ankle injury in the first half, Brazdeikis got another massive boost in minutes. After putting up just 7.0 points per game in March, the Michigan product has almost doubled that average to start the month of April.

Magic's Ignas Brazdeikis: Scores 13 in first NBA start

Brazdeikis closed with 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 37 minutes during Sunday's 118-88 loss to New York. Making his first career start, Brazdeikis led all players in minutes and turned in a respectable stat line, despite the blowout loss. The former Michigan standout spent much of the year in the G League, but he's begun to see more minutes of late with the Magic in full-on tank mode. Sunday marked Brazdeikis' fourth straight double-digit scoring game.
