Pat Connaughton/Blake Wesley NBA Tracker: Jan. 23-29
This past week was a clear indication of where the two former Notre Dame players currently in the NBA and their teams are at. Pat Connaughton and the Milwaukee Bucks won all four of their games, and Connaughton played a big role in that. He had his best game of the season Jan. 25 against the Denver Nuggets with 19 points and 12 rebounds, both of which represented season highs for him. For the week, he averaged 11.3 points and 7.0 rebounds a game while shooting 61.5% from the field.
Meanwhile, Blake Wesley and the San Antonio Spurs lost all four of their games. During a 38-point loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Jan. 26, Wesley had six points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal in 21 minutes. He followed that up with no points and two rebounds in four minutes Jan. 28 against the Phoenix Suns. That brought him a 3.0 scoring average and 2.0 scoring average for the week.
