Pat Connaughton/Blake Wesley NBA Tracker: March 13-19

There were a couple of solid games from Notre Dame’s NBA representation, but they both came in losses. For Pat Connaughton, his performance was in the Milwaukee Bucks’ only loss of the week. He had 10 points, six rebounds and tied his season high of three steals in a March 16 start against the Indiana Pacers. Over four games, he averaged 7.0 points and 3.3 rebounds a game while shooting 43.5% from the field.

With the San Antonio Spurs officially eliminated from playoff contention, this is a perfect opportunity for Blake Wesley to provide some solid minutes in the final weeks of his rookie season. He best took advantage of that with 11 points, six rebounds and four assists March 15 against the Dallas Mavericks. He also tied his season high with three steals. His four games over the week gave him a scoring average of 7.3, a rebounding average of 2.5, an assists average of 4.3 and a .370 field-goal percentage.
