-Very strong game by Jeff Ledbetter, who finished with 15 points and 7 boards in 21 minutes. He shot 5/10 from beyond the arc. Ledbetter is 31 years old and doesn’t have an NBA body but is a great story.

-Tough shooting night by Luka Samanic, but he was much more aggressive on offense. Luka Samanic finished with 9 points on 2/9 shooting in 24 minutes. Samanic continues to struggle with turnovers, who has had 8 in the first two games, and looked completely exhausted in the 4th quarter.

-Tough game for former Delaware Blue Coat Keenan Evans, who finished with just 4 points in 22 minutes. He shot 2/9 from the floor and 0/2 from beyond the arc.

-Strong performance by Devontae Cacok, who finished the game with 16 points, 12 boards, 5 steals and 2 blocks in 19 minutes. The undrafted free agent shrugged off a tough first game when he shot 3/9 from the floor. Cacok was a +25 and provides a ton of energy on the court.

-Mediocre first game by Malachi Richardson with the Warriors, who finished with 9 points in 20 minutes on 3/8 shooting. Malachi hit 3 of his first 4 shots from beyond the arc. Richardson was impressive in the G-League last year when he put up 20.8 points per game and shot 39.3 percent from 3.

Eric Paschall shook off a horrendous first game and put up 18 points and 3 boards in 23 minutes last night. Paschall looked very strong and quick in his drives. He made some nice plays on defense. Eric Paschall looks like a backup 4 in the NBA.

-Tough game by Dylan Windler, who finished with 5 points and ¼ from 3 in 28 minutes. However, Windler stuffed the stat sheet with 8 boards, 5 assists and a steal.

-Utah Jazz’s Dusty Hannahs dropped 20 points last night on 7/12 shooting in 24 minutes. Hannahs was highly efficient on offense, hitting 3/3 from the free line and 3/6 from beyond the arc.

-Fantastic game by Tony Bradley, who finished with 26 points and 16 boards in 26 minutes. He was a +23 on the court and shows a real skill at keeping the ball high and finishing in traffic. Bradley got to the line 10 times. Great game.

Kendrick Nunn was the standout for the Miami Heat, who finished with 27 points and 4 3-pointers. Nunn was a major cog of  Miami’s 4th quarter comeback to beat the Sacramento Kings.
