It appears that every two months, former BYU mega-star Jimmer Fredette is going to have a nice game in the NBA.
Almost exactly two months after "the Jimmer" scored 24 points in 27 minutes for the Kings in New York, Fredette was at it again Monday night against Orlando.
With the Bulls getting ready for the NBA playoffs, Fredette played 31 minutes and responded with 17 points (on 7-of-14 shooting) in Chicago's 108-85 win over the Magic.
The most minutes he'd played in a single game for the Bulls up until Monday night was eight — and not surprisingly, his high point total to that point was just five.
It was fun to check out the highlights but it's very hard to say if this is a good sign for the future or just another flash in the pan from the days when Jimmer-mania swept the country.
