Tough debut for Billy Preston in Bosnia. Had 3 fouls in 6 minutes, scoring 2 points on 1/3 shooting with 2 assists, 1 rebound and 1 steal in Igokea's home win over second-tier Croatian team Zadar in the Adriatic League.
That offensive rebound and putback is the most aggressive @flyguyfreddyy has been all night. Maybe it will continue. #UNLVmbb has answered Northern Colorado's surge with a 6-0 run for a 63-59, prompting a Bears timeout.
Ben Simmons and Jayson Tatum have received most of the rookie attention, but Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell has also been terrific. Averaging 17.5 points and shooting 38 percent from deep. Simmons leads rookies in scoring (17.7), rebounding (9.5) and assists (7.5).
I am so underwhelmed by Simmons' 15 assist, zero turnover night considering the hype it's getting. He assists to two shots at the rim. 1, Marco takes 2 dribbles and 6 steps and he somehow gets the assist, the other he mishandles a dunk and then passes it to a cutting Marco.
