Thomas Robinson finished with 14 points, a career-high 18 boards (seven offensive), two assists, and two blocks, one which was highlight reel material as the Blazers blasted the TWolves 108-97.
Robinson's career type day came at the expense of the injury depleted TWolves, but who cares who it comes against as long as it comes right. Robinson, who teammates were calling Thomas Aldridge, played 33 minutes off the bench while Blazer starting power forward Dorell Wright played seven less than effective minutes. Robinson started the second half, which could indicate that if LaMarcus Aldridge misses the team's next game then TRob could get the start over Wright.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Redskins are likely to pick up Robert Griffin III's option for 2016.
The true answer is "They better pick it up". The deal to pick up Griffin cost the Redskins a fortune so it shouldn't be that big of a surprise, even with the troubles he has had, that Washington is picking up the option for next year. He will have another year under Jay Gruden and his system before heading into 2016 so this might be a trade value season for RG3. Analysis: Rob Trayah
