A beast in the making. I’m pretty sure he will be staple of this column in the years to come…
Surprisingly Zach’s 21 and 21 was not so unique as you may think.
It happened 32 times in the playoffs – http://bkref.com/tiny/cOAFW

He finally took advantage of his match-up and destroyed Bosh… which Celtics really needed in order to win. Will it happen again in this series? Because if not Boston will probably go home.
Mike Bibby had 0 points, 0 rebounds even though he attempted 5 shots and was a starter..
It was unique in terms of playoffs but it happens a lot during regular season.
