Evan Mobley accounted for 31 points (12-of-19 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), nine rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block, and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes Thursday vs. Denver. Mobley's big night wasn't enough to get the Cavaliers the win, as they fell to the team with the West's best record by a 115-109 final score. But this was his second game with 30 points or more this season and first since January 21, when he put up a season-high 38 in a win over the Bucks. Providing 6th-round, per-game value in 9-cat formats for the season, Mobley's been a 4th-round player over the last month. Jarrett Allen, a top-20 player during that stretch, finished Thursday's loss with 14 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 29 minutes.
