Week 14 statistics: 4 GP, .534 FG%, .850 FT%, 0 3PTM, 79 PTS, 45 REB, 15 AST, 2 ST, 7 BLK, 7 TO
A multi-category contributor at the center position, Gasol was particularly valuable for his free-throw shooting (17 made free throws in Week 14), rebounding, assists, and blocks. He was third in rebounds and tied for seventh in blocks this week.
4. SF/PF Danny Granger, Indiana Pacers
