Big Minutes Big Boon to Rookie Big

Ryan Anderson has stepped up. Not only has he had to replace Yi Jianlian's offense, he's knows that unless he does it, it doesn't get done. Eduardo Najera is out til at least the All-Star Game and Stromile Swift hasn't returned yet so the bench upfront is thin. In the last four games, he's done it all, averaging 14 ppg and 7.5 rpg, shooting 56.3% from deep. But the biggest improvement is his defense.
