Gorgui Dieng's pick-and-roll defense has been the reason he's recently seen more playing time.
Dieng has played between 24.5-29 minutes in each of the last four, and he's seen more minutes than rookie Karl-Anthony Towns in three of those games. "The pick-and-roll is hard to defend. If you can do that, you’ve got a chance to play more on the floor," Dieng said. Trending upward after a nightmare start to his season, Dieng is averaging 11.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks. He should be picked back up in your league if he was dropped.
