Published on April 13th, 2017 by Astramskas, David | 628 views

As one of the most exciting fantasy basketball seasons comes to an end, Jonas Valanciunas gave his owners a surprise bonus during the Wednesday’s win over the resting Cavs. Midway through the second quarter, Jonas knocked down his first career three-pointer. It was his fourth attempt in 363 games over five seasons.

He also had an easy 13 points and 7 boards in just 15 minutes of action.

Also worth mentioning (I guess) is Bruno Caboclo knocking down 1 of three 3-pointers for his second of the season and center Lucas Nogueira missing both of his 3-point attempts while trying to go for his fourth three of the season.

As for the struggling Cavs, JR Smith was 1 for 6 from three, Shumpert put up a donut on three attempts and James Jones was a God-awful 1 for 12 off the bench.
