Aron Baynes is having a career year for the San Antonio Spurs – partly due to injuries to guys like Tiago Splitter, but also because of a new-found confidence that stems from increased playing time.
Baynes’ numbers have jumped to 7.4 points per game and 4.8 rebounds, while playing a career-high 17.2 minutes each night.
