Analysis: A move to San Antonio hasn't been overly beneficial to Gasol's fantasy profile, though he's averaged a well-rounded 16 points, eight rebounds and 4.7 assists over his last three games to offset a very slow start.
Nov. 11 7:36 PM PT8:36 PM MT9:36 PM CT10:36 PM ET3:36 GMT11:36 8:36 PM MST10:36 PM EST7:36 UAE (+1)04:3622:36 ET9:36 PM CTNaN:� - Gasol had season highs with 21 points and six assists, and the San Antonio Spurs snapped a three-game home losing streak with a 96-86 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.
